GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - Iota made landfall near Puerto Cabezas with winds of 155 mph Monday night, the same area that was hit by category 4 Hurricane Eta two weeks ago. The storm will weaken quickly as it brings another round of catastrophic rainfall to Central America.

Iota will weaken rapidly as it moves over northern Nicaragua and approaches Honduras. It will start to depart from the path Eta set down as it crosses into Honduras, eventually dissipating on the west coast of the country.

The hurricane season runs through the end of November.
