Comments: IOTA has continued to strengthen into a dangerous Category 4 hurricane, expected to bring potentially catastrophic winds, life-threatening storm surge, and extreme rainfall impacts to Central America. Data from aircraft and NOAA satellites indicate that maximum sustained winds have increased to near 145 mph (230 km/h) with higher gusts. Iota is a category 4 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale. Additional rapid strengthening is expected, and Iota could possibly be a catastrophic category 5 hurricane when it approaches Central America on the night of 16 Nov 2020. On the forecast track, the core of Iota will pass near or over Providencia island (Colombia) during the early hours of 16 Nov, and make landfall in northeastern Nicaragua and eastern Honduras in the night.
