Hurricane Delta has made landfall in Mexico as a strong category 2 on the Saffir Simpson scale, bringing life-threatening storm surge, dangerous winds and torrential rainfall. Delta had earlier rapidly strengthened into a dangerous category 4 as it headed towards the Yucatan Peninsula. Hurricane Delta made landfall in Northeast Mexico as a strong category 2 on the Saffir Simpson scale. It then went on to hit the Gulf Coast of the United States of America.
Delta is now forecast to be the record 10th US land-falling tropical cyclone in a single season (9 in 1916). Areas along the Northern Gulf Coast are at risk for impacts while still dealing with the aftermath of hurricanes Laura and Sally.
The 2020 Atlantic hurricane season has been so active that the regular list of rotating names has been exhausted and the Greek alphabet is being used.
