Nate: Gulf coast avoids major damage
BILOXI – The Gulf Coast is waking up Sunday to a small mess after Nate made landfall Saturday.
By sunrise, flooding had gone down in most areas of the Mississippi Gulf Coast. On a stretch of beach, though, boats were washed ashore or partially under water. A storm surge of about five feet pushed boats onto land and overtopped others.
Some ground-level areas of at least one casino were flooded. Saturday night, water flooded the main highway along the beach in Biloxi. By Sunday morning, the water had receded.
In Manchac, Louisiana, the flood wall around popular Middendorf's restaurant was closed. It was closed as a precaution, but it was not needed. Water along Lake Maurepas did not rise all that much.
Nate left the region. Sunday, Louisiana will be warm and humid. Click HERE for the latest forecast.
