Eta has made landfall on the southern tip of Florida, shutting down large parts of the region as the state braces for destruction. The tropical storm has already laid waste to parts of Central America and the Caribbean.
Tropical Storm Eta has already left dozens dead and over 100 missing in Central America. It has now made landfall in Cuba, prompting the US to put parts of southern Florida and the Keys on hurricane watch.
Several people have been killed and many more have been left without electricity or road access after Iota, now a tropical storm, ripped through coastal regions. Hurricane Eta hit the same area just weeks ago.
A hotter and more humid world has made tropical cyclones like hurricanes and typhoons more extreme but not more deadly.
