Hey, there's a hurricane (as of this morning) in the Caribbean Sea! Yes, hurricane season continues through November. Hurricane Ida made landfall in Nicaragua this morning as a category one with winds near 75 mph. It will weaken into a tropical storm as it remains over land... but it could eventually wind up in the Gulf of Mexico. (The forecast is very uncertain.)
