SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - Nicole made landfall on the east coast of the state of Florida, and though she quickly weakened to Tropical Storm strength winds, she left a lot of catastrophic damage to towns such as Wilbur-by-the-Sea in Volusia County and Daytona Beach.

It caused collapses of buildings in coastal communities and two deaths have been reported in Orange County, according to the Orange County Sheriff’s Office.

By the time she reached the Suncoast, the storm’s winds had died down.

For now, the National Hurricane Center says Nicole’s maximum sustained winds are at 45 MPH. She is currently lingering over the Big Bend region but is expected to continuing her track north.

The next NHC update will be at 7 p.m.
