Massive Tropical Storm Could Impact New Jersey

Since Nate will be moving inland over the U.S. this weekend, people may have little time to react and prepare for a tropical storm or hurricane, AccuWeather said.

A massive, quick-moving tropical storm now south of Cuba will threaten part of the southern United States as a hurricane this weekend before trekking toward the Northeast, according to AccuWeather.com.

Since Nate will be moving inland over the U.S. this weekend, people may have little time to react and prepare for a tropical storm or hurricane, AccuWeather said.

Nate is likely to make landfall somewhere from the Florida Panhandle to southeastern Louisiana. The exact point of landfall will be determined once the storm begins to move north of Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula.

"Since the system will be moving over very warm waters, we could quickly have a powerful hurricane on our hands," according to AccuWeather Hurricane Expert Dan Kottlowski.

New Orleans declared a state of emergency on Thursday.

The most recent models show Nate moving into New Jersey Tuesday or Tuesday night. It is too early to project its possible impact as it is unclear how much Nate will weaken after making landfall.

Including Nate, there have been 14 tropical storms, eight hurricanes and five major hurricanes thus far.

Hurricane season began June 1 and lasts through Nov. 30.
