Strengthening in The Gulf, Eta Now a Hurricane

Eta is now Category 1 hurricane with 70 mph winds, the National Hurricane Center said Wednesday. The storm will bring strong winds and rain to the area.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 115 miles (185 km) from the center. A University of South Florida COMPS buoy just southeast of Eta’s center recently measured a sustained wind of 49 mph (79 km/h) and a gust to 65 mph 104 (km/h). Doppler radars indicate that tropical-storm-force winds are located just offshore the southwestern coast of Florida. Across the lower Florida Keys, a sustained wind of 43 mph (69 km/h) and a gust to 56 mph (90 km/h) were recently reported at Sand Key.
