NHC: Iota to Transform into Major Hurricane

Portions of Central America are bracing for the arrival of Hurricane Iota which the National Hurricane Center says has strengthened into a dangerous Category 4 hurricane.  The meteorologists warn, however, that Iota could transform into a “catastrophic Category 5 hurricane” as it moves over the Caribbean before it slams into Colombia, Nicaragua and Honduras by Monday night. The forecasters say Iota is expected to deliver “potentially catastrophic winds, life-threatening storm surge and extreme rainfall impacts.”    Iota is moving with maximum sustained winds of 230 kilometers per hour as it heads toward much of the same area devastated by Hurricane Eta earlier this month.
