On 8 October 2017 The Associated Press reported: A fast-moving storm called Nate brought flooding and power outages to the U.S. Gulf Coast early Sunday after it sloshed ashore outside Biloxi, Mississippi -- the first hurricane to make landfall in that state since Katrina devastated the region 12 years ago. Authorities were beginning to assess the storm's impacts, but most areas in Nate's path seem to have avoided major damage -- including New Orleans. 'We are thankful because this looked like it was going to be a freight train barreling through the city,' said Vincent Creel, a spokesman for the city of Biloxi. Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the field of science, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.

Nate initially made landfall Saturday evening in Louisiana, but fears that it would overwhelm the fragile pumping system in New Orleans proved to be unfounded. The storm passed to the east of New Orleans ...

Despite the debris [in Biloxi], there was little to no damage to structures that were visible. A handful of businesses had reopened before dawn, and the storm surge that washed across the highway had receded by 6 a.m.

'Thankfully, right now we have no major damage reports,' said Mississippi Emergency Management Agency spokesman Greg Flynn.
