At least 22 people are dead as a result of Tropical Storm Nate which formed today and is projected to hit the U.S. gulf this weekend as a hurricane.

In the U.S., officials in coastal states declared states of emergencies ahead of the storm’s arrival.

As of the National Hurricane Center’s 5 p.m. ET advisory, Tropical Storm Nate is about 40 miles west-southwest of Puerto Lempira, Honduras, and 425 miles south-southeast of Cozumel, Mexico.

“On the forecast track, the center of Nate should move across eastern Honduras this evening and over the northwestern Caribbean Sea tonight and Friday,” the Center said.

Fox News reports that Rosario Murillo, Nicaragua’s vice president, said Thursday that at least 15 people had died in the country due to Nate. Murillo didn’t elaborate on many of the deaths, but noted that three people who worked for the Health Ministry were swept away by a flooded canal in Juigalpa.

Nicaragua has seen near-constant rain in recent weeks, which left areas flooded and rivers swollen.

Costa Rican President Luis Guillermo Solis said seven people died in Costa Rica from the tropical storm, which pushed 5,000 people in the country into emergency shelters due to flooding. At least 15 people in Coast Rica remain missing.

Officials in Louisiana ordered evacuations in part of St. Bernard Parish east of New Orleans, and a voluntary evacuation was ordered early Thursday in Grand Isle, south of New Orleans.

New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu declared a state of emergency Thursday in preparation of Nate’s expected arrival in the coming days, noting the tropical storm could make landfall as a Category 1 hurricane.
