Zeta Turns Into Hurricane and Threatens to Dump Torrential Rains
Zeta could dump up to a foot of rain on some parts of the Yucatán by Tuesday before its projected landfall in the Gulf States.
“You get more water vapor in the sky” with warmer air, one scientist said. “And that water has to go somewhere.”
If the forecasts hold, Zeta will continue a pattern that has been playing out this year where much of the damage from storms has come not from wind but from water. And that destructiveness is linked to climate change.
