The depression that crosses the Caribbean Sea and that shelters part of Colombian waters became a tropical storm on Friday afternoon ‘Iota’.
The natural phenomenon continues its journey from east to west through the center of the Caribbean Sea towards the island of San Andrés and Central America, following the same path as the previous hurricane Eta.
The storm will cause more rain, electrical discharges and winds in much of the Caribbean Sea and in the departments of the Colombian Caribbean region, including Barranquilla and the Atlántico.
This is the 31st storm of the hurricane season in the Atlantic during 2020, a very active year due to these phenomena and surpassing that of 2005. It is also the second hurricane season in which it is named with Greek letters after the names of the alphabet have been exhausted.
