Update on Hurricane Zeta

The storm hit New Orleans late Tuesday as a Category 2 storm with 110 mph winds.

That is just one mile an hour shy of a Category 3.

Zeta brought 10-foot storm surges and we know at least three people have died. Right now, it is too early to say what the impact on agriculture will be.

NASA captured the eye of Zeta moving across the Gulf from the space station.

The powerful winds caused major damage in New Orleans. Nearly half a million people are without power this morning. One film crew captured the moment the power surge left the city in black; it could take days to get everyone back online.

In Georgia, many are waking up to some flooding and wind damage to their homes. More than one million people in the “Peach State” are also without power.

Zeta is fast moving and is now downgraded to a tropical storm. It is charging up the mid-Atlantic coast and will be out to sea by early tomorrow morning.
