As the storm moved farther inland, over MS and Alabama, it quickly weakened, but not before leaving up to 100,000 Gulf residents without power and causing storm surges throughout the Gulf Coast. Evacuation orders were put in place for some low-lying areas.

Ahead of Nate's landfall, the governors of Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama all issued stern warnings to residents.

Flooding and landslides caused by Nate have already killed at least 17 people across Costa Rica and Nicaragua and the storm is estimated to cause about $1 billion in damage.

Portions of downtown Mobile, Ala., were flooded Sunday morning hours after Hurricane Nate made landfall along the Gulf Coast.

Tropical Storm Nate, downgraded from a hurricane on Saturday, Oct. 7, made landfall in Mississippi on Sunday, bringing flooding and power outages as it came ashore near Biloxi, Mississippi. While he concedes the force of hurricane "Maria" and "Irma", which hit the area in September, it also brings with it strong winds and heavy rains.

In Mississippi, Gov. Phil Bryant on Friday declared a state of emergency in several southern counties in preparation for the storm.

Nate spared the Gulf Coast the kind of catastrophic damage left by a series of hurricanes that hit the southern US and Caribbean in recent weeks.

A hurricane warning was in effect for Grand Isle, La., east to the Alabama/Florida border, and metropolitan New Orleans and Lake Pontchartrain in Louisiana.

"The storm surge is a big thing that really traps everyone", Biloxi, Miss., Mayor Andrew Gilich told CNN. The US Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has been entrusted with the coordination of the efforts to deal with the damage caused by Hurricane Nate.

The Gulf of Mexico is home to about 17 percent of daily USA crude output and 5 percent of natural gas output, according to the US government estimates.

'We have a restaurant and one of our main bars open so they have been okay so far, ' said Chett Harrison, the general manager at the Golden Nugget hotel and casino in Biloxi. "NASA's Aqua satellite provided that data and showed strongest storms were in Hurricane Nate's eastern side".
