    Zeta is expected to hit the northern gulf coast by midweek.

    Looks like another close call and more bad luck for Louisiana.

    Walton County Emergency Management
    Oct 28

    As of the 10:00 a.m. CT NHC advisory, Tropical Storm Zeta is located 235 miles SSW of New Orleans moving NN at 18 mph. Zeta has strengthened into a hurricane with 90mph winds.

    The largest change since our previous update is that the entire Walton County is under a Tropical Storm Warning. Zeta has a large lopsided wind field extending well to the east of the center. Although we are not in the cone, this wind field along with its projected path is the reason that we are under the Tropical Storm Warning.

    Our primary threats have not really changed since this yesterday. Widespread rainfall of up to 2" with some localized areas receiving more, dangerous rip currents, waves of 8-12', beach erosion, minor storm surge of 1'-3', damaging winds, and isolated tornadoes are still our primary threats. The exact impacts are track dependent and could change as Zeta nears landfall. The most likely time we could begin to experience winds would be approximately 9 p.m. tonight (Wednesday evening).

    Watches, Warnings, Advisories
    • Tropical Storm Warning for all of Walton until further notice.
    • Rip Current Statement - high chance of rip currents through Friday.
    • High Surf Warning for South Walton from 7 a.m. today until 6 p.m. tomorrow (Thursday)
    • Small Craft Advisory for Coastal Walton County from 1 a.m. today until 1 a.m. Friday.
    • DOUBLE RED FLAGS flying on South Walton Beaches:
    o DOUBLE RED: HIGH HAZARD - WATER IS CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC! LIFE THREATENING SURF AND RIP CURRENTS!

    Protective Actions as of 1100 CT; 10/28/2020
    • There are NO evacuations for Walton County
    • There are NO shelters open in Walton County
    • There are NO storm-related road closures at this time
