Storm Nate kills at least 25 people

Storm Nate has brought strong winds, heavy rain and some flooding to the south-eastern United States. It made landfall as a hurricane twice, in Louisiana and Mississippi, but is now weakening rapidly. Some storm surge warnings have been lifted but weather officials say danger remains in Alabama and western Florida.

Nate killed at least 25 people in Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Honduras. No deaths or injuries have yet been reported in the US. Although not as strong as last month’s Maria and Irma, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and parts of Florida had issued warnings and evacuation orders ahead of its arrival.
