Several states along the U.S. Gulf Coast are cleaningup from Hurricane Nate. Storm's first landfall in thecountry was near the mouth of the Mississippi Riverin southeast Louisiana. That was just after midnightSunday. It's second landfall was in Biloxi, Mississippi,Sunday morning.
It was a category one hurricane then that wassince been downgraded as it moved inland and weakened.
Nate's the third hurricane to hit the continental U.S. in six weeks. It's 85-mile-per-hour windspeeds at landfall were much weaker than those of the category four hurricanes Harvey andIrma. But Nate still caused flooding along the Mississippi coast. It prompted warnings aboutstorm surge, the rise of ocean water blown ashore by a hurricane, and it knocked out powerto tens of thousands of Americans.
U.S. President Donald Trump declared emergencies in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama andFlorida. What that does is speed up the process of getting money and help to those who needit.
Before it hit the U.S., Nate killed at least 28 people across Costa Rica, Nicaragua and Hondurasand caused flooding and mudslides.
