Tropical storm Eta has been named the 28th storm of this year’s hurricane season as it heads toward Central America. Eta is expected to make landfall in Nicaragua on Tuesday and currently has sustained winds of 40 miles per hour.

Upgraded from tropical depression 29, Eta has tied the record of named storms in a season, which was set in 2005.

The tropical storm could be upgraded to a category one hurricane if it gains strength quickly as it moves westward. Flash flooding may occur in Jamaica, Cayman Islands, and Central America as Eta has continued to bring heavy rainfall.
