Hurricane Iota has rapidly intensified to a powerful Category 5 hurricane. Winds are up to 160 mph and the pressure is down to 917 mb. There is still a chance it could get a little stronger before it makes landfall tonight on Nicaragua.

It will make landfall very near where Category 4 Eta did a few weeks ago. This will be devastating for those areas that are still recovering. Iota is forecast to move west over the mountainous terrain and quickly weaken. It is expected to stay away from the Gulf as a ridge of high pressure builds over the water and this would keep it moving west into the Pacific as a remnant low.
