This GeoColor satellite image taken Tuesday, Nov. 3, 2020, and provided by NOAA, shows Hurricane Eta in the Caribbean Sea, arriving at Nicaragua's northern shore. Eta inched closer on Tuesday as a Category 4 storm.
The heart of powerful Hurricane Eta began moving ashore in Nicaragua on Tuesday with winds and rains that had already destroyed rooftops and caused rivers to overflow.

The hurricane had sustained winds of 140 mph, according to the U.S. National Hurricane Center, down from an overnight peak of 150 mph. Even before it made landfall, Honduras reported the first death after a mudslide trapped a 12-year-old girl in San Pedro Sula.

On Tuesday afternoon, the Category 4 hurricane was still on the coast, about 15 miles south-southwest of coastal Puerto Cabezas or Bilwi, and it was moving west near 5 mph.

Landfall came hours after it had been expected. Eta's eye had hovered just offshore through the night and Tuesday morning. The winds uprooted trees and ripped roofs apart, scattering corrugated metal through the streets of Bilwi, the main coastal city in the region. The city's regional hospital abandoned its building, moving patients to a local technical school campus.

Record smashing snow and ice storms cause 'havoc' in Alaska and the Yukon

Snow in Whitehorse

Record volumes of snow and ice began building Sunday afternoon across Alaska and NW Canada, and continued accumulating through Monday. The unprecedented storms soon strangled roads, knocked the power out for tens of thousands, and forced the closure of schools and businesses.

A boundary of cold Arctic air moved farther south than forecasters had originally expected, dramatically dropping temperatures across Alaska and the Yukon.

"It seems like a perfect storm," said Alaska Electric Light and Power's Debbie Driscoll. "We had a lot of snow and also a lot of heavy ice."
