The 7th hurricane of 2017 and Nate is destined to be the United States 3rd hurricane landfall of 2017. Droughts often end with a flood right?

Once clear of competing forces in the Caribbean and land interaction, Nate has organised and strengthened quickly over the open Gulf of Mexico posing a significant threat on the US Gulf Coast tonight. According to Dr Phil Klotzbach, Nate is the first hurricane to roam the northern Gulf of Mexico since Lili in 2002.

Latest info puts Nate as a strong Cat 1 with 90 mph winds but is expected to intensity further prior to landfall.

Hurricane Nate poses a very dangerous storm surge risk with worst areas expecting a surge of over 10ft. This could be disastrous for parts of the coast…
