Hurricane Eta continues to inch closer to the coast of Nicaragua. Eta is centered about 30 miles ESE of the Puerto Cabezas, Nicaragua and moving WSW at 5 mph. On the forecast track, the center of Eta is expected to make landfall along the coast of Nicaragua today. The center of Eta is forecast to move farther inland over northern Nicaragua through Wednesday morning, and then move across the central portions of Honduras by Thursday morning.
Maximum sustained winds are near 145 mph with higher gusts. Eta is a category 4 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale. Little change in strength is likely before landfall. Weakening will begin after the center moves inland later today.
