It is going to be the 25th named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season of 2020. Let’s hear about it in brief. Well, Hurricane Delta is actually formed in the Caribbean Sea during the night time back on Monday. It is supposed to lash the Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula and then will strike the Gulf Coast later this week. The storm was original tropical depression on Monday morning and then eat Rose up to become a hurricane by the evening of the day. The storm was basically 165 miles southeast of Grand Cayman as reported, by 2 AM on Tuesday. Hurricane Delta will probably reach the Gulf Coast in the form of a powerful Hurricane by Friday.
The Hurricane center had said, “Additional rapid strengthening is expected during the next day or so, and Delta is expected to be a major hurricane when it nears the Yucatan Peninsula,” “risk of dangerous storm surge, wind and rainfall hazards along the coast from Louisiana to the western Florida Panhandle.” The senior meteorologist of AccuWeather, Randy Adkins further reported, “residents across the Gulf Coast from southeast Texas to Florida” should be prepared for the storm to make landfall “at the end of the week or early next weekend.”
