He welcomes the night who has enough provisions
Short are the sails of a ship,
Dangerous the dark in autumn,
The wind may veer within five days,
And many times in a month.

Storm hits Central America, at Least 3 Dead

Tropical Storm Nate unleashed intense rainfall across much of Central America on Thursday, leaving at least three dead in Costa Rica and several missing in neighboring Nicaragua, according to local officials.

Exxon Mobil Corp said it is evacuating all staff from its Lena platform in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico ahead of Nate, which is expected to strengthen into a hurricane and make landfall on the Louisiana coast early Sunday.

Nate was about 30 miles (48 km) northwest of Puerto Cabezas, Nicaragua, on Thursday and moving northwest at a speed of 9 mph (15 kmh), according to the Miami-based National Hurricane Center.

The storm had maximum sustained winds of 40 mph (64 kmh).

Costa Rica's government declared a state of emergency, closing schools and all other non-essential services while emergency officials reported three killed due to the heavy rains, including one child.

Highways were closed due to mudslides, and power outages were reported in parts of Costa Rica, where authorities deployed more than 3,500 soldiers to help residents.
