new orleans - Hurricane Nate reached the American mainland on Saturday night, which caused the hurricane at the mouth of Mississippi, not far from New Orleans. The storm is now moving north to a speed of nearly 40 kilometers per hour, which is remarkably fast for a hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico, as late as the National Hurricane Center. Wind speeds are measured at 140 kilometers per hour.
The hurricane's eye is still at sea. Nate is already the ninth hurricane of this season, which is as much as in the record year 2012 when hurricane Sandy New York slammed.
