Tropical Storm Zeta expected to strengthen into hurricane
Tropical Storm Zeta has stalled in the western Caribbean. But the National Hurricane Center says the storm is strengthening and is likely to become a hurricane by the time it nears Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula and the U. S Gulf Coast, where it's expected to drop heavy rain along with those strong winds. The storm system is a very large one, and it could make landfall anywhere from Louisiana to the Florida Panhandle. Louisiana's governor John Bell, Edwards, is urging residents to monitor the storm.
