“Fortunately, for Louisiana and our friends along the Mississippi Gulf Coast Nate’s impact was relatively minimal,“ said Leonard “Lenny” Kopowski, of the Louisiana Manufactured Housing Association.
“Hurricane Nate barreled over Pensacola quickly, but left relatively little damage in its wake,” said the Pensacola News Journal. “Nate rolled into the mouth of the Mississippi River on Saturday night as a Category 1 storm with maximum sustained winds of 85 mph, the National Hurricane Center reported. By Sunday afternoon, the storm was well northeast of the area and weakened to a tropical depression.”
WHNT19 in Gulf Shores, AL. had a similar report.
“Gulf Shores was expecting to get hit hard by Hurricane Nate, but according to a spokesperson for the city, the damage was minor,” per WHNT19
“We’re very fortunate here. That last little jog to the west, it never really turned as far to the east as it was anticipated. Intensification didn’t quite get to Cat 2 level,” said Gulf Shores spokesperson Grant Brown.
Clearly, not every weather or – other warnings – turns out as feared.
There was minor localized flooding and other damage reported. But after the devastation of Harvey, Irma, and Maria, the nation and people of the Gulf Coast got a break from mother Nature. ## (News, analysis.)
