Residents in affected areas are being urged by Gulf Shores Mayor Robert Craft to evacuate ahead of Hurricane Nate.

Residents of all properties in Emergency District 32 and all beachfront houses and duplexes within Emergency District 33 were designated in a release by the City of Gulf Shores as areas under the mayor's evacuation order.

"District 32 includes all properties along West Beach Boulevard located west of Little Lagoon Pass/Lee Callaway Bridge. District 33 encompasses the west beach area between West 8th Street and Little Lagoon Pass/Lee Callaway Bridge," the release reads.

The announcement comes in direct response to developments that Hurricane Nate has escalated to a Category 2 storm.

"Beachfront and low-lying areas will experience life-threatening storm surge of 6 to 9 feet above normally dry ground and potentially catastrophic hurricane force winds," the release reads.

I hope all of the people in these affected areas such as Gulf Shores hightail it inland. 

Gulf Shores could really get hammered by this storm.  

If you look at Gulf Shores on a map, its possible that a lot of property could be underwater after the storm passes.  Storm surges 6-9 feet above normal dry ground.

Stay safe everyone!
