Pensacola, fl

A hurricane swept through the southern United States, with strong winds that knocked down trees and power lines, killing at least 3 people

The hurricane hit the coast of Louisiana with winds of 175 kilometers per hour, cutting electricity to 2.5 million residents from Louisiana to North Carolina.

Police said that a New Orleans man was electrocuted, while another was killed by high waves in Mississippi due to the storm. A third was killed by a tree falling due to winds in Georgia.

The hurricane is the fifth storm to hit Louisiana this year.

The hurricane stopped 85% of offshore oil production in the US Gulf of Mexico, and prompted energy companies to close marine pipelines and evacuate workers from 230 offshore platforms.
