TAMPA, Fla. — Tropical Storm Eta is now a post-tropical cyclone, and the National Hurricane Center (NHC) says it could become absorbed by a larger non-tropical cyclone on Saturday or Saturday night.

Eta brought heavy rain and strong winds across a large portion of Tampa Bay on Wednesday and into Thursday. The storm caused several areas to flood and is being blamed for at least one death in Manatee County.
