Hurricane Warnings for Parts of Florida’s East Coast as Nicole Nears

The storm likely will make landfall between Fort Lauderdale and Daytona Beach

Hurricane warnings are in effect for parts of the east coast of Florida as Subtropical Storm Nicole churns toward the Sunshine State. Confidence is increasing about the potential for the storm to be near or at hurricane strength as it makes landfall on Florida’s Atlantic coastline Wednesday night.

Rain, strong winds and coastal flooding could begin along Florida's east coast early Wednesday, with deteriorating conditions in the afternoon and especially at night.

Hurricane warnings — representing the threat of winds reaching 74 mph — span from Boca Raton to the Flagler-Volusia county line. Tropical storm warnings are in effect for the rest of Florida’s east coast north of Miami, as well as the coast of southern Georgia, connoting a high likelihood of tropical storm impacts.
