(Reuters) - Tropical storm Eta is expected to make landfall in Cuba in a few hours and is forecast to produce a dangerous storm surge, flash floods and strong winds over portions of Cuba and Florida, the U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) said early on Sunday.

The storm is about 125 miles (205 km) west-southwest of Camaguey, Cuba, with maximum sustained winds of 65 miles per hour (100 km/h), the Miami-based weather forecaster said.
