Tropical Storm Eta moves north from Cuba toward Florida's west coast
A tropical storm warning is in effect for the Dry Tortugas, a group of islands west of Key West. Eta, about 315 miles south-southwest of Tampa, is moving north-northeast at 9 mph. Now with 65 mph winds,
the storm could reach minimal hurricane strength over the coming days, but it is expected to weaken as it approaches Florida's Big Bend area.
Subtropical storm Theta sets a record
Meanwhile, subtropical storm Theta formed in the Atlantic Ocean on Monday night, making 2020 the most active hurricane season on record with 29 storms so far.
No watches or warnings are in place as Theta, now a tropical storm, will travel east and stay in open water before dissipating, according to the National Hurricane Center.
