On Thursday early morning, Hurricane Nicole thrashed on the Atlantic coast of Florida, taking the lives of two people present nearby and leading to widespread power cuts across Florida.
The climatic tension was so high that even homes in Florida trembled, and a few collapsed.
As informed by NBC News, Nicole started showing terror at midnight around 3 a.m ET on the east coast of Florida – Vero Beach.
Hurricane Nicole rapidly increased its speed with winds at approximately 75 mph, informed the National Hurricane Center of Florida.
It was not so long that Florida was already washed out by Hurricane Ian about six weeks ago, and now Nicole’s forthcoming has worsened the tension in Florida.
Though Hurricane Nicole was not as powerful as Hurricane Ian, Ian was marked as Category 4 for the high-cost damages, whereas Nicole was marked as Category 1.
Hurricane Ian had already destroyed several important parts of Florida with its power thrashing. Hurricane Ian had destroyed homes and swept off Florida to a larger extent.
But what Hurricane Nicole did adds more damage to the already damaged Florida.
Nicole devastated the people of Florida as they were still coming out of the shock of Hurricane Ian’s rage. Nicole turned into a tropical storm causing heavy damage and destroying homes.
On Thursday afternoon, two people from Orange country were electrocuted by naked wires downed in the rainwater. People even had to evacuate their homes for safety.
About twenty-five homes in Florida have been declared unsafe to stay in due to damages from Ian and Nicole, coastal houses have also collapsed badly in Wilbur-By-The-Sea, Volusia County, and twenty-four hotels have been marked unsafe for accommodations as well in Daytona Beach Shore.
Then people have been reported to immediately vacate their houses and move to other safer places.
Nicole left a widespread effect in parts of St. Johns Country, where areas of the coastal highway were damaged due to the devastating effect of Nicole, and parts of the highway were covered under water.
It has also been reported that a huge number of people, approximately three lakhs in number, did not have electricity since Thursday morning. The number only increased more by Thursday evening.
Such devastating landfall has happened two times since November, as previous records of devastating climate change last from 1935 and 1985.
However, the damages made by Ian and then worsened by Nicole will need much time to get repaired. The damages suffered and lives lost due to the horrifying landfall shall continue to have adverse effects in Florida.
By Thursday afternoon, Hurricane Nicole had weakened its speed, and winds were recorded at 45 mph. It is expected that Nicole will lose its strength in Florida territory.
