3 Sep 2020, 8:45 am

Nana made landfall in Belize shortly after 1 am Central Time as a category 1 hurricane with maximum sustained winds off 75 mph. Nana strengthened to a hurricane a few hours before landfall late Wednesday night but weakened to a tropical storm again shortly after making landfall.

Nana eventually weakened to a remnant low on Thursday night.  The remnants will continue to bring an additional 3 to 6 inches of rain to parts of Guatemala and southeastern Mexico.

 

The storm could re-develop into a tropical depression in the Eastern Pacific after it moves offshore.
