Tropical depression track shifts west toward south Louisiana; landfalling hurricane possible

Airbnb has extended its disaster response program for hurricane evacuees in Florida until Oct. 16

The depression has sustained winds of 35 miles per hour and is moving northwest at 7 miles per hour, Fox News reported. The storm will likely strengthen into Tropical Storm Nate on Thursday as it tracks towards Nicaragua and Honduras.

The forecast from the National Hurricane Center brings Nate near the Yucatan Peninsula on Friday, and then into the northeastern Gulf of Mexico this weekend.

Experts have said the system could affect parts of the northern Gulf Coast, including Georgia and possibly Florida, as a hurricane by the weekend - bringing storm surges and heavy rainfall to the area.

Tropical Storm Nate is expected to impact Florida this weekend with rain and wind even though the eye is not now forecast to make landfall in the state.

After a way too brief respite from organized tropical activity in the Atlantic, we're now getting a look at what the National Hurricane Center has officially named Tropical Depression Sixteen.

It's not the first time the Trump administration has broken with its predecessor on how to interpret Title VII . Several LGBTQ civil rights groups blasted Sessions' directive.

It has a low chance of developing into a tropical depression within the next 5 days-about 10%, according to the National Hurricane Center. Our hurricane season typically ends by mid-October as the strong upper level winds that push down cold fronts also shove storms away from Texas.

Whatever this system becomes will make landfall Sunday or Monday.

The center is expected to approach the Yucatan coast late Friday, and could touch Mexico and eventually reach the USA mainland, forecasters and officials said. The storm is now expected to pass over Mexico's tourism-friendly southern coast, with a potential - and subject to change - landfall forecast along the coast of Louisiana and Mississippi.

Overnight the track of Nate has shifted west, suggesting that the storm is more likely to miss Florida but hit Louisiana instead.
