Tracking the Tropics: Hurricane Zeta makes landfall Wednesday evening, now racing inland & weakening

Weather Headlines

Zeta made landfall Wednesday evening as a category two hurricane with sustained wind speeds near 110 mph. It brought storm surge, wind, flooding rain and tornadoes to parts of the Gulf Coast regions of Lousiana, Mississippi Alabama, and Florida Panhandle.

As Zeta continued to move inland, it has quickly weakened as it moves northeast at 39 MPH. By Thursday night, it will be nearly absorbed by the low-pressure system tracking across the Eastern U.S.

After landfall in the United States, Zeta will weaken and accelerate northeast as it merges with a cold front Thursday.
