Tropical Cyclone Activity is not expected for the time being, nor are any tropical disturbances under investigation by the National Hurricane Center (NHC)

Hurricane Otto impacted the Caribbean coast Thursday afternoon, less than 20 miles north of the border between Nicaragua and Costa Rica, making history in the process. Otto was the latest hurricane to make landfall anywhere in the Atlantic basin in records…going back to 1851. Otto holds the mark for the southernmost hurricane landfall on record for Central America.

Otto’s impact on people and structures was minimized by its landfall location, as the storm moved across a sparsely populated area.
