Hurricane Nate has made landfall at the mouth of the Mississippi River as a Category 1 storm with winds of 85 mph.

The National Hurricane Center said Saturday night that Nate is expected to make a second landfall along the coast of Mississippi on Saturday night and then pass over parts of Mississippi, Alabama and Tennessee.

As a result of the latest track, officials in New Orleans cancelled the curfew that was supposed to begin at 7 p.m. They also announced they will not barricade several underpasses in the city that are notorious for flooding during rain events.

The storm has weakened slightly and is moving north a little slower at 20 mph.
