MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) – The record-breaking 2020 Atlantic Hurricane Season continues with the National Hurricane Center issuing advisories on Tropical Storm Iota.

Iota is the 30th named storm of the 2020 season. This is the farthest we have ever gone through the Greek Alphabet. The storm will continue on a westward track though the weekend and early next week.
