Nate forces World Cup qualifier postponement

Nate forces World Cup qualifier postponement”

Mexico has issued a yellow alert in eight municipalities of Quintana Roo before the storm approaches on Friday night.

Nate was moving toward the north-northwest near 14 miles per hour (22 kph), and this general track with a marked increase in forward speed is expected during the next day or two.

"Nate is expected to become a hurricane by the time it reaches the northern Gulf of Mexico", the Centre said.

The National Hurricane Center in Miami has issued a hurricane warning for metropolitan New Orleans and Lake Pontchartrain.

Another powerful storm, Hurricane Maria, ripped across Caribbean islands in late September, wreaking destruction in several countries and territories, including Dominica and Puerto Rico. Heavy rainfall will occur over a wide area, including locations well away from the center along the Pacific coast of Central America. It is expected to pass near or over the coast of Mexico's Yucatan peninsula late Friday.

Additionally, offshore oil and gas operators have evacuated personnel from six of the 737 manned oil and natural gas production platforms in the Gulf of Mexico, according to the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement. That's almost 9 per cent of the 737 manned platforms in the Gulf.

The bureau also said five rigs now operating in the Gulf also had been evacuated, while 11 other rigs were moved out of the storm's path.

The measure will come into effect from Saturday evening to Sunday morning as the eye of the storm is forecast to pass close to the city.

A damaged boat is pictured on the shore of San Juan del Sur Bay after tropical storm Nate in San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua October 6,2017.

The World Cup qualifier between Costa Rica and Honduras initially scheduled for Friday has been pushed back to Saturday due to Tropical Storm Nate.

The Costa Rican Football Federation (FEDEFUT) has announced Friday's World Cup qualifier at home to Honduras will instead be played on Saturday at 16:00 local time (22:00 GMT).

Costa Rica declared three days of mourning for those killed by Tropical Storm Nate, and President Luis Guillermo Solis warned that, although the storm had passed, it was too early to say the danger had gone.
