Nate Makes Landfall in Southern US as Category 1 Hurricane

WASHINGTON – Hurricane Nate made landfall near the mouth of the Mississippi River in the southern United States on Saturday evening, with maximum sustained winds of 85 miles per hour (140 kilometers per hour), according to the US National Hurricane Center.

The Category 1 storm has already caused at least 25 deaths in Central America, and has cut power to thousands of homes, the NHC said.

The storm was moving north at a speed of 20 mph, and hurricane force winds should be felt up to 40 miles from the center of the storm, with tropical storm force winds extending out as far as 125 miles.

Nate was expected to weaken as it moves through “parts of Mississippi, Alabama and Tennessee” during Sunday, and should be downgraded to a tropical storm by Sunday night, according the NHC.

Hurricane and storm surge warnings were in effect from Grand Isle Louisiana to the Alabama/Florida border, while the alert for metropolitan New Orleans and Lake Pontchartrain has been downgraded to Tropical Storm.

States of emergency have been declared in Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama, as well as in 29 northern Florida counties.

Nate is the third hurricane to touch down in the mainland US this summer after Harvey (Texas) and Irma (Florida), both of which caused widespread damage.
