Hurricane Nate has slammed into the southeastern tip of the U.S. state of Louisiana,after leaving dozens dead and causing widespread flooding in Central America.
 
The storm is moving north.
 
Hurricane Nate on Saturday made landfall near the mouth of the Mississippi River. The fast-moving storm steamed toward the Mississippi coast.
 
Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and parts of Florida have issued hurricane warnings and evacuation orders.
 
Hurricane Nate caused severe flooding in parts of Central America that left at least 22 people dead in Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Honduras.
 
The tropical storm has since strengthened and is now a category one hurricane on the five-level Saffir-Simpson scale. 
 
Although not as strong as last month's Maria and Irma, Nate is expected to bring strong winds and storm surges.
