Furacão Delta ameaça o México e costa dos EUA

October 7, 2020 - O furacão Delta, uma tempestade da Categoria 3 ligeiramente enfraquecida mas ainda perigosa dirige-se para a península do Iucatão, no México com ventos de 195km/h seguindo depois para a costa do Golfo dos EUA.

Delta, the 25th named Atlantic storm this year, rapidly intensified into a major Category 4 hurricane on Tuesday before weakening slightly as it closed in on Yucatan.

But forecasters warned that Delta was still extremely dangerous, capable of bringing a life-threatening storm surge that could raise water levels by up to four metres (3 feet), along with large and dangerous waves and flash flooding inland.

Delta was forecast to spend several hours lashing the Yucatan Peninsula before moving into the Gulf of Mexico and re-strengthening before a strike on the U.S. Gulf Coast later in the week.
