Zeta upgraded to hurricane as weary Gulf Coast residents await landfall

Zeta, the storm that formed in the Caribbean over the weekend, gained strength Monday to become a hurricane, which forecasters warn is likely to make landfall along the U.S. Gulf Coast, where storm-beleaguered residents are fearful of yet another round of destruction.

Zeta, the 27th named storm of the 2020 season, intensified to a Category 1 hurricane with maximum sustained winds of 80 mph Monday and made landfall in Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula, the National Hurricane Center said.
