Hurricane Nate Weakens To Tropical Storm After Mississippi Landfall

Hurricane Nate weakened to a tropical depression on Sunday after coming ashore in Mississippi as the fourth hurricane to hit the United States this year.

The storm flooded roads and buildings but sparing the state from catastrophic damages.

As the storm moved northeast into Alabama, Nate’s maximum sustained winds dropped to 35mph, prompting the National Hurricane Center to end its tropical storm warnings for the region.

Mississippians, particularly in the Gulf Coast area where the storm made its second landfall, are beginning to recover from the storm, photographs show.

The storm made landfall in Mississippi last night as a Category 1 hurricane, the weakest designation by the center.

Only a few hours earlier, its winds had been blowing at 70 mph but appeared to lack the devastating punch of its recent predecessors.

‘We are very fortunate this morning and have been blessed,’ Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant told reporters, saying there had been no deaths or reports of catastrophic damage.
