Fast Moving Tropical Storm Nate Heads Northeast

Oct 9, 2017

After coming ashore on the Mississippi and Alabama Gulf coast as a category 2 hurricane Nate moved swiftly north and then northeast. The storm in the fourth to hit the U.S. this season and was not as strong as the previous three that devastated Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. However, Nate did do some wind and flood damage including knocking out power to at least 100,000 people in Mississippi.

Fortunately, the storm is moving rapidly and lost power and will not be producing the torrential rains its slow moving predecessors did. Hurricane season officially ends on November 1st.
