After Hurricane Irma and Harvey caused massive destruction, another tropical storm named Nate is already approaching the Gulf Coast. Nate has caused deadly flooding in Nicaragua and Honduras. There is a possibility that it might hit coastal Louisiana to the Gulf Coast of Florida. After it caused destruction in Nicaragua and Honduras, it will move on to the northeast where an expansive area of high pressure is across the western Atlantic. The National Hurricane Center announcement for Gulf Coast residents reads: “Nate is forecast to reach the northern Gulf Coast this weekend as a hurricane, and the threat of direct impacts from wind, storm surge, and heavy rainfall is increasing.” If a hurricane does not occur, then another problem becomes the tropical storm. A tropical storm causes flooding and could mean the loss of lives and destruction of property. Losing property could affect residents economically. It could also affect them socially because they will see themselves with no livelihood, and may have lost loved ones. If Nate causes destruction, then we as people should help them by giving water and food so they feel that others care for them.
