Gulf Coast people, please let us know how you are.
FOX: The outer bands of Hurricane Nate lashed parts of Louisiana, Alabama and Mississippi with heavy rain Saturday afternoon as Gulf Coast residents prepared for an evening landfall and those in low-lying areas fled for higher ground.
As of 5 p.m. ET, Nate was located about 50 miles south of the mouth of the Mississippi River and about 140 miles south of Biloxi, Miss. It was still a Category 1 storm but was expected to reach Category 2 strength before making landfall. The storm killed at least 21 people after strafing Central America earlier in the week. MORE
