Nate threatens $1 billion damage in US and Central America

Monday, October 9, 2017

Hurricane Nate made landfall and was reduced to a tropical storm on Saturday near New Orleans as the wider region prepares for a possible $1 billion worth of damage, adding to the carnage caused by the most devastating month of hurricanes in history.

Nate has left at least 22 people dead in Central America, specifically affecting Costa Rica, Nicaragua and Honduras with landslides and floods. It left as many as 400,000 people without running water in Costa Rica, and forced the evacuation of some oil platforms in the Gulf of Mexico.
