SITUATION OVERVIEW
------------------

Eta has made landfall near Cedar Key this morning. It has been on a 
weakening trend over the past few hours, and the strongest winds are 
forecast to remain out of our local area. Additionally, strong southerly 
flow was never quite able to cause surge issues for coastal Dixie county. 
Thus, as of this morning's advisory all Tropical Storm and Storm Surge 
watches have been cancelled. There still may be some gusty winds from 
time-to-time this morning across the southeast Big Bend, but those should 
come to an end by mid-morning. This will be the final issuance of this product 
for Eta.
