Tropical Storm Nate Could Develop Into Hurricane

The bad weather news just keeps coming for the southeasterrn U.S. A  cyclone currently wreaking havoc in Nicaragua and Honduras has been  upgraded to Tropical Storm Nate, and experts expect it will develop into  a hurricane within the next three days and potentially hit the U.S.  Gulf Coast.

 "Residents along the Gulf Coast from Louisiana through the  Florida Panhandle should monitor the progress of this system and heed  any advice given by local officials," the National Hurricane Center  says, although the organization adds, "it is too early to specify the  timing, location or magnitude of these impacts.” Thankfully, Nate's  sustained winds are estimated to top out at 75 mph, far less than  Hurricanes Irma and Harvey.
