Tropical storm Nate weakens but rain, floods to continue

A fast-moving storm called Nate brought flooding and power outages to the U.S. Gulf Coast early Sunday after it sloshed ashore outside Biloxi, Mississippi — the first hurricane to make landfall in that state since Katrina devastated the region 12 years ago. The storm hit Mississippi as a Category 1 hurricane with maximum sustained winds near 85 mph (140 kph) but weakened later to a tropical storm as it moved inland, the U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami said. More than 100,000 residents in Mississippi and Alabama were without power following the arrival of Nate, but no deaths or injuries were reported early Sunday. click here to read the story 09:53

Tropical Storm Nate: Path brings a hurricane to northern Gulf Coast earlier

Tropical Storm Nate got a little stronger and picked up speed on Friday morning on a path that could bring it to the northern Gulf Coast as a Category 1 hurricane in less than 48 hours. The center of the storm moved back over water early Friday after spending most of Thursday over Central America. Nate will move near or over Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula tonight and then enter the Gulf of Mexico late tonight or early Saturday. Nate is forecast to then race across the Gulf and could be nearing the coast of Louisiana by early Sunday morning. click here to read the story 08:25
