(CNN)Hurricane Zeta made landfall in Mexico Monday night, bringing heavy rains and possible storm surge to a region struck by Delta just three weeks ago.

Zeta struck the Yucatán Peninsula north of Tulum, Mexico, shortly after midnight as a Category 1 hurricane with winds of 80 mph, according to the National Hurricane Center.
The area is being pummeled by strong winds and heavy rains, and the storm is expected to bring storm surge of 2 to 4 feet above normal tides, according to CNN meteorologist Michael Guy. Hurricane warnings are in effect for Punta Allen to Progreso, Mexico, and Cozumel.
    Zeta is forecast to lose energy as it crosses the Yucatán, but it will likely remain a Category 1 as it moves across the Gulf Coast to make landfall between the Mississippi River Delta and Mobile, Alabama, Wednesday evening.Fast Facts: 2020 Hurricane SeasonRead MorePreparations for the storm are underway in New Orleans, Louisiana, where voluntary evacuations have been issued for areas outside their levee system, including Irish Bayou, Venetian Isles, and Lake Catherine, starting Tuesday evening, a release from the City of New Orleans said.The New Orleans metro area is bracing for tropical storm force winds, heavy rain and coastal flooding of four to six feet as a result of Hurricane Zeta, according to the city's release.Residents are being encouraged to gather emergency supplies, including food, water, and medications, for at least three days, and the City of New Orleans plans to provide sandbags to residents on Tuesday, the release said. On Monday, Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards issued an emergency declaration ahead of Zeta's arrival. More than 1,150 Louisiana National Guardsmen have been activated and have a variety of high-water vehicles, boats and helicopters pre-positioned for search and rescue efforts, the Governor said."We must roll up our sleeves, like we always do, and prepare for a potential impact to Louisiana," said Edwards. Zeta could set recordsIt has been a very active hurricane season, and it could be record setting for Louisiana. Zeta is forecast to reach the state at or near hurricane strength Wednesday -- and if it does, it will set the record for most named storms in the state in one season."The good thing and a bad thing at the same time is, we've had a lot of practice this year," Edwards said.Zeta would be the fifth, following Cristobal, Laura, Marco, and Delta. Zeta would also bring Louisiana to tie with Florida in 2005 with the most landfalls in any state in one season."This storm is expected to make landfall somewhere on the Gulf Coast by midweek, meaning we have a few days to prepare. As we've seen this hurricane season, a tropical threat during the ongoing COVID-19 emergency is challenging, but something we can handle," Edwards said in a tweet.And the area is still reeling from back to back storms.Hurricane Laura struck as the strongest storm in Louisiana since 1856 in late August. In Louisiana and Texas, the storm destroyed homes and structures in its path and killed at least 25 people. More than 8,000 Hurricane Laura evacuees were in shelters six weeks later when Delta struck, Edwards said.
      Hurricane Delta left a trail of "hazards like flooded roads, downed power lines and displaced wildlife" across the state, Edwards tweeted at the time. The storm killed at least four people, spawned more than 10 tornado reports from the Gulf Coast to the Carolinas, and covered part of Louisiana in more than 17 inches of rain."Even if it wasn't quite as powerful as Hurricane Laura, it was much bigger," Edwards said of Delta. "Obviously, this was a very serious, very large and powerful storm that produced significant amounts of damage."

      Beijing storm into last 16, deja vu for Perth Glory

      Coronavirus updates: Every hour, 65 Americans are dying; AstraZeneca plans additional trial after error; hospitalizations hit record, again Saudi-led coalition bombs Yemen rebel sites after Aramco attack Beijing storm into last 16, deja vu for Perth Glory

      Beijing Guoan and Ulsan Hyundai Motors continued their relentless march in the Asian Champions League at the expense of Australian sides who suffered another day of misery on Friday.

      © - Spaniard Jonathan Viera was Beijing’s star on Friday, scoring their first goal with a superb finish in the ninth minute and providing the assist to Zhang Yuning in the 35th for their second win over Melbourne Victory in three days

      While Beijing Guoan stormed into the last-16 phase of the tournament with a 2-0 win over Melbourne Victory in Group E, Ulsan Hyundai Motors edged past Perth Glory by a similar margin to boost their chances of qualifying from Group F.

      Bruno Genesio’s Beijing Guoan have yet to drop a point, their fourth win in as many matches proving they are the team to beat in this year’s competition as they made the next stage with two matches to spare.

      Spaniard Jonathan Viera was Beijing’s star on Friday, scoring their first goal with a superb finish in the ninth minute and providing the assist to Zhang Yuning in the 35th for their second win over Melbourne Victory in three days.

      “Overall the team had a very good performance. We controlled the game very well and scored two goals in the first half which was very important for us,” said Frenchman Genesio.

      “We were also able to keep a clean sheet, but it would have been good had we scored a couple of goals more.”

      Victory’s Steve Kean was struggling to cope with the result.

      “It’s obviously a difficult result for us, but I think we need to put the game into perspective,” he said.

      “We said yesterday we had the opportunity to go again against the same side, and we take a lot of positives from the game.

      “There are mistakes to work on, but overall, while we are bitterly disappointed with the result, our performance showed we are making strides to get to where we want to go.”

      Meanwhile, Perth Glory were struggling to cope with their fourth straight loss as Ulsan Hyundai notched their third win in four matches.

      Ulsan had beaten Perth 2-1 three days ago in Doha, first equalising in the 89th minute through Kim In-Sung and then netting the winner through Junior Negao four minutes later when the match was into stoppage time.

      In an unusual coincidence that will haunt Perth Glory for long, it was Kim and Negao who again scored in the 87th and 89th minutes on Friday as Ulsan again clinched a late victory.

      “It’s deja vu time for us, unfortunately,” lamented Perth Glory coach Christian Ola, whose team were playing at this level for the first time and now stand eliminated with not a single point from four matches.

      “We tried a lot during the match and showed a lot of resilience but couldn’t keep our composure until the end,” added Ola.

      “We kept them at bay largely so they did not have many chances, but in key moments our players failed to stay composed and we conceded twice.”

      Ulsan coach Kim Du-hoon was all praise for his team although he hinted the match could have gone either way.

      “First of all both teams played well until the end and I would say that the Perth Glory players must be applauded too,” said Kim.

      “We are happy to have scored twice in the final five minutes even though some of the players were tired.

      “I hope those players will fight and give their best again next time.”
