Tropical Depression Nate Moves Inland

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, Tennessee -

Nate is moving inland with heavy rains and gusty winds after socking the central Gulf Coast.

Forecasters said Sunday that Tropical Depression Nate was about 75 miles south of Nashville, Tennessee. 

Nate was a hurricane when it washed ashore earlier Sunday along the Mississippi coast.

At 4 p.m. Sunday, Nate was a tropical depression with winds of about 35 mph. 

The depression is dropping rain across Florida and Georgia and into the southern Appalachian Mountains. It will drop more rain on the Ohio Valley and continue into the Northeast before exiting Maine on Tuesday.

Forecasters are calling for 2 to 4 inches of rain in those areas.

Authorities were beginning to assess the storm's impacts, but most areas in Nate's path seem to have avoided major damage - including New Orleans. 
Nate's powerful winds have knocked out power to more than 100,000 customers in Mississippi and Alabama. More than 25,000 power outages were reported in southern Mississippi, according to CBS affiliate WLOX.

Outages were mostly concentrated on the eastern half of the state's narrow coastal strip, in Harrison, Jackson and George counties.  

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
