Another hurricane is soon expected to form over the Bahamas before it reaches Florida’s east coast this Wednesday.
Subtropical Storm Nicole is likely to become a hurricane just after election day wraps up.
According to My Twin Tiers, hurricane specialist Phillippe Papin stated that there won’t be any noticable impacts of Nicole until Tuesday night into Wednesday.
This means it should not impact the polls.
He added this is going to be a big storm. There will be a lot of wind on the north side and will cause “quite substantial surf.” This vould lead to a dangerous storm surge on Florida’s east coast with heavy rainfall and strong winds.
There are hurricane watches in effect for the northwestern Bahamas and Florida’s Atlantic Coast from Hallandale Beach to north of Daytona Beach. There is a watch as well for Lake Okeechobee. These watches were given by the Miami-based National Hurricane Center.
Broward County up to Georgia’s coast is seeing a storm surge watch.
The hurricane is expected to approach Florida and then cross into the Gulf of Mexico.
The biggest worry at this moment is that the flooding and storm could wreak havoc on areas that still aren’t fully recovered from Hurricane Ian.
