Tropical Storm Nate

Nate first struck near the mouth of the Mississippi River on the southeastern Louisiana coast as a Category 1 storm Saturday night and again near Biloxi, Miss., early Sunday morning knocking out power for more than 100,000 customers across the region and causing scattered flooding, but it was not as devastating as they expected and quickly lost force as it moved inland.

After several hours of heavy rainfall, the National Hurricane Center downgraded the tropical storm to a tropical depression and has subsequently discontinued all hurricane and storm surge warnings and watches.

At 2:15 a.m. local time Sunday, the National Weather Service of Mobile measured water surges of 5.6 to 5.7 feet at locations near the city.

The National Hurricane Center said Nate will “quickly weaken as it moves farther inland” and “should degenerate into a remnant low late Monday.”

The Long Island region should expect to see bouts of heavy rain and winds as the remnants of the storm passes through the area.
