US braced for deadly storm

Irish Sunday Mirror - - NEWS -

HUR­RI­CANE Nate is threat­en­ing to hit the US cen­tral Gulf Coast with winds and storm surges.

The weather sys­tem has al­ready killed 25 peo­ple in Cen­tral Amer­ica.

New Or­leans evac­u­ated some res­i­dents as the cat­e­gory one hur­ri­cane, the weak­est on a five-cat­e­gory scale used by me­te­o­rol­o­gists, churned to­wards the cen­tral Gulf of Mex­ico.

The city’s mayor Mitch Lan­drieu said: “Nate is at our doorstep or will be soon. We have been through this many, many times. There is no need to panic.”
