Default [BBC] Hurricane Nate: Storm heads to New Orleans

[BBC] Hurricane Nate: Storm heads to New Orleans

A state of emergency has been declared in four southern US states with
as Hurricane Nate gathering strength as it heads towards the Gulf Coast.

Full story:

Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and parts of Florida have issued
hurricane warnings and evacuation orders.

The measures apply to parts of the city of New Orleans, which was
devastated by Hurricane Katrina 12 years ago.

Nate killed at least 25 people as it swept through Nicaragua, Costa Rica
and Honduras as a tropical storm.

The storm, which brushed past Mexican beach resorts, is still
strengthening, and is now expected to make landfall as a category two
hurricane overnight.

Though not as strong as last month's Maria and Irma, Nate will still
bring strong winds and storm surges. Its latest recorded wind speeds
reached 90mph (150km/h).
