NASA has deemed Humberto a "zombie" tropical storm, but relax -- it doesn't want to eat your brains.

Humberto was given the ghoulish moniker after it degenerated into a low pressure area, and then strengthened into a tropical storm again on September 16.

Humberto isn't the only zombie to take over the Atlantic basin this year.

Gabrielle also lost steam and then re-formed this year, bringing over 70 mm of rain to Atlantic Canada in the process.

Meanwhile, in the Gulf of Mexico, Ingrid has weakened to a tropical storm after making landfall near La Pesca.

Torrential rainfall is expected on already water-logged areas of eastern Mexico. According to the U.S. National Hurricane Center, Ingrid is expected to produce between 250-380 mm of rain, with isolated amounts of 600 mm possible.
