Record set.

NHC Atlantic Ops:  Otto is the southernmost landfalling hurricane on record for Central America.  Full details: hurricanes.gov

Hurricane Otto may become the first named storm in history to traverse Central America (from Atlantic to Pacific) and retain the same name.

And once again, a big earthquake occurs in the region of a hurricane.  (About 400 miles (640 km) away here.)   Just coincidence.  ;)

Waters in the Gulf of Mexico averaged 84°F (29°C) this hurricane season, the warmest on record. By a mile.
