225K without power as Zeta smashes Gulf Coast

After a long night of heavy winds and life-threatening storm surge, Hurricane Zeta has finally pulled away from south Mississippi.

Around 4:10 p.m. CDT on Wednesday, Hurricane Zeta made landfall near Cocodrie, Louisiana as a Category 2 storm.

Within three hours, the storm surge, described as “unreal” by The Weather Channel, had pushed its way onshore in Mississippi.

The Sun Herald reported that one death – an Alabama man filming the storm in Biloxi – came about as Zeta was wreaking havoc across coastal Mississippi.

According to Eric Carpenter of the National Weather Service, over 225,000 Mississippians remain without power as the now-tropical storm brings heavy rains to portions of eastern Tennessee and the Carolinas.
