    When Tropical Storm Nate formed and forecasts put New Orleans in its projected path for this weekend, one big question loomed for residents and business owners: Will the pumps work? "That's now a thought in everybody who lives in New Orleans," said Devin Shearman, a manager at Katie's restaurant and lounge, which flooded during an unexpected rainstorm Aug. 5. It was one of two flash floods this past summer that led to revelations about personnel and equipment problems at the New Orleans Sewerage and Water Board, the agency that runs the pumping system that drains the city. Some pumps weren't...

    Tropical Storm Nate is emerging from Honduras into the Western Caribbean. Forecast models are in agreement that Nate will continue into the Gulf of Mexico. Oil companies have begun evacuations of offshore platforms.

Hurricane and tropical storm watches, as well as a storm surge watch, have been issued for a portion of the northern Gulf Coast, and residents in these areas should monitor the...

    Tropical Storm Nate is expected to strengthen into a hurricane and strike the Gulf Coast on Sunday, forecasters said Thursday. Though the storm is only a few days away from an expected landfall in the United States, its probable path was still unclear, and the authorities cautioned that in the United States, residents anywhere from Louisiana to the Florida Panhandle could be at risk. Tropical storm-force winds were expected along the Gulf Coast beginning sometime on Saturday.
