Adams Native Gives Perspective on Hurricane Nate

Adams Native Gives Perspective on Hurricane Nate

Posted: Updated:

More than 100,000 people were without power in Mississippi and Alabama Sunday morning as then Hurricane Nate made its way through that part of the Gulf Coast early Sunday morning.

While the Nate was packed with storm surge on shore and hurricane force winds and flooding, it did not have the intensity of other storms this season such as Harvey, Irma, Maria and Jose.

There are deaths from the storm's path in central America, however no deaths or injuries were immediately reported since landfall in the U.S.

Adams native David McIntosh lives in Gulfport, Mississippi where Hurricane Nate hit. He was also there for Hurricane Katrina in 2005. 

McIntosh said hurricanes are common enough that many people already have supplies in place for when they happen.

"Nate was one of the mildest ones, in fact probably a little milder than George," McIntosh said. "People down here are indeed used to it, just like in the north country you're prepared for snow."
