BILOXI, Miss. (WFLA) — Just hours after making landfall in southeast Louisiana, Hurricane Nate made a second landfall in Mississippi.
Nate was a Category 1 hurricane at the time of both landfalls. It has since weakened to a tropical storm.
Nate’s landfall in Mississippi brought a heavy storm surge and flooding near Biloxi.
Video shows the surge whipping waves at a lighthouse pier.
The surge could also be seen crashing over a seawall. This video was taken from inside a car on US-90.
Several casinos in the area were hit with flooding. Officials say the water did not reach the inside near the gaming areas.
A storm chaser took this video of flooding from the first-floor of the parking garage at the Golden Nugget Casino.
