Ummm, Hurricane Nate was an October event if I recall
Although Hurricane Nate's duration over here in west Biloxi wasn't long I encountered 90+mph winds for almost 3 hours that night; my power went out at least 50 times; no more than a minute each time but the storm surge in east Biloxi impacted most if not all of the casinos on Casino Row. I remember WLOX TV-13 providing live coverage into the night; they were still broadcasting that storm surge at 3:00 a.m. the next morning. Rainfall amounts for my area in west Biloxi weren't that much but the winds were very strong but only for a short time. Tropical Storm Gordon on the other hand was a "nothing burger" for me in west Biloxi; Pascagoula on the other hand was impacted more.
I agree cajungal. However, any cold front I'm sure would pick it up and away from Louisiana. It'll be a timing issue - does the front come get here in time?
Isaac was the first (and only) hurricane I experienced at my previous home that I bought in 2011. I've been wondering what will be the name of the first hurricane I experience in the home I bought in 2016 when I moved. It would be quite ironic that the first hurricane in both homes would be Isaac.

Worth keeping a close eye on Tropical Depression Nine over the next week. The systems long term track looks very very unclear...in fact, this system's future is highly dependent on exactly what Florence decides to do along the Eastern Seaboard. Slower moving Florence...better chance TD9 never threatens the Western Caribbean or Gulf of Mexico. A faster Florence & stronger high pressure system to the north of TD9...leads me to think TD9 could become something we will be talking about quite a bit the next 8-12 days. If you haven't already, make sure to tidy up your tropics safety kit just in case you had to use it this season!
