Hours after regaining hurricane force on Wednesday morning as it started moving northeastward over the Gulf of Mexico, Eta weakened into a tropical storm just west of Florida early in the afternoon. Still, forecasters are predicting that the storm will make a second U.S. landfall along Florida’s Gulf coast as a 1 on the AccuWeather RealImpact™ Scale— potentially bringing a rare strike to the Tampa and St. Petersburg area.

A hurricane watch was in effect for the area Wednesday, which has become known for dodging hurricane landfalls. Churning over the Gulf just 115 miles south-southwest of Tampa, the storm was on the move again Wednesday early. It was heading to the north-northeast at 15 mph — one day after it had sat stationary off the western tip of Cuba, triggering additional flooding concerns for western parts of the island nation and South Florida.

[2] Typhoon Vamco nearing the northern Philippines (Another typhoon to hit square on the Phlippines and then traverse all the way to Vietnam...!)

As of Wednesday morning, EST, Typhoon Vamco, known as Ulysses in the Philippines, is over the Philippine Sea tracking toward the west. Vamco is currently the equivalent of a Category 1 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale, with maximum sustained winds of 70 knots (80 mph). The window for further strengthening into a Category 2 equivalent is rapidly closing as it is nearing landfall near Luzon, Philippines. Flooding rain, mudslides and damaging winds are likely over the northern Philippines into early Friday, local time.

Vamco will enter the South China Sea later Thursday, then continue to track toward the west-northwest before striking Vietnam this weekend.
