FIRST TO ALERT: Nate moving across Alabama

FIRST TO ALERT: Nate moving across Alabama

It is expected to diminish as it approaches the Tennessee Valley and then turns northeastward, although rain and possible flash flooding were expected as it passes Monday through the Ohio Valley and the northeastern states.

Nate made its second U.S. landfall near Biloxi, Mississippi, shortly after midnight local time Sunday as a Category 1 hurricane. On Saturday night, the storm came ashore along a sparsely populated area in south-east Louisiana.

The storm's reach will be wide, CNN meteorologist Chad Myers said, with strong winds affecting population centers from New Orleans to Panama City, Florida.

The vessel traffic, including cruise ships waiting to disembark at New Orleans, will restart after surveys to assess the impact of the storm are finished, according to Gary LaGrange, executive director of the association.

Photos and videos of tropical storm Nate have surfaced after the storm had rapidly weakened to a tropical depression after it moved over Alabama on Sunday as a tropical storm, The National Hurricane Center reported.

Storm surges along the US Gulf Coast are forecast as high as eight feet (2.5 meters) above ground level, prompting officials to order mandatory evacuations in some low-lying areas.

Wentz's 4 TD passes help Eagles rout Cardinals
Tight end Zach Ertz put the Eagles up 14-0 after he wrestled his way for a touchdown off an 11-yard feed from Wentz. According to NFL.com, Wentz became the first Eagles quarterback with three or more TD passes in the first quarter.


Trump earlier issued an emergency declaration for Louisiana and MS allowing federal aid to be sent there to help mitigate the storm's impact.

The mayor said the City of New Orleans will resume normal operations Monday, including regular parking regulations. Flooding drove 5,000 residents into emergency shelters.

"I lived through Katrina and I know what that was like", said Jackie Daigre, 69, who was buying groceries at a busy Walmart store, where the shelves of bottled water were picked nearly completely bare.

At one point, the eye of the storm passed over Keesler Air Force Base, where the National Hurricane Center's hurricane hunter planes are kept, the center said.

The head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency said the four hurricanes that have struck the US and its territories this year have "strained" resources, with roughly 85 percent of the agency's forces deployed. Authorities placed the whole country on alert and warned of flooding and landslides.

It was Nate's second landfall.

Police said that a cupboard kept in the room where the women were found murdered, was ransacked, but nothing was found missing. The family members said that they always believed that staying together in a big, joint family would ensure security.


US President Donald Trump said federal officials were prepared for the storm, and urged residents of Alabama, Florida, Louisiana and MS to "listen to your local authorities & be safe!" "We're encouraging the public to do all they can to prepare as we do in every weather event; you have to have a plan", Landrieu said.

In neighbouring MS, lines formed at gas stations in areas along the potential path of the storm.

With the gusty winds comes the threat of power outages across the area. Hurricanes Harvey and Irma tore through some coastal states killing dozens and destroying thousands of properties.

Then the U.S. territory of Puerto Rico was devastated by Hurricane Maria, with huge parts of its infrastructure destroyed.

At least 12 people were killed by the storm in Nicaragua, nine in Costa Rica, two in Honduras and two in El Salvador.

The offensive line must have been doing something right. "The offense hasn't changed". "We got off to that tough start". One thing that was unequivocally impressive Saturday was how the Tigers held a risky Ole Miss passing game in check.
