Hurricane Nicole: See Florida webcams in Stuart, Flagler Beach, Satellite Beach and more

Florida has another hurricane on its hands in 2022 if Hurricane Nicole makes landfall in the US Wednesday evening or early Thursday morning on the east coast of Florida. At the time of writing this on Wednesday afternoon ET, Nicole was descending in the Bahamas expecting to be upgraded to hurricane status anytime, according to the National Hurricane Center. (Update at Nov 9. 7:30 PM ET: Nicole is now officially a hurricane)

As the storm moves west, live webcams are a safe and convenient way to stay abreast of weather conditions on its potential path of destruction, and to feel connected to those dealing with Nicole’s fallout.

Nicole is not expected to hit Florida with the strength of Hurricane Ian, which hit Florida on September 28 from more or less the opposite direction. Ian, a Category 4 hurricane and one of the most powerful in state history, led to the death of an estimated 127 people. By contrast, Nicole is likely to be a Category 1 hurricane on landfall and weaken as it moves inland.

Nevertheless, in or near Nicole’s “cone of uncertainty” are major population centers and tourist attractions, including Walt Disney World and former President Donald Trump’s personal residence and golf resort, Mar-a-Lago.

Here are some webcams you can use to keep an eye on this storm as it rumbles toward Florida. Upon landfall, you’re likely to witness hurricane-force winds and a terrifying storm surge.

The webcam in downtown Stuart, Florida, is likely to show a storm surge in the city’s streets.

On Wednesday, residents of Stuart were already report storm surge in their community. As the storm approaches, this webcam is one to watch.

Located on a barrier island just east of mainland Florida, Satellite Beach is just north of the storm’s expected landfall point and is preparing for the weather, though it will dodge the storm’s eye.

Watch live webcam at Deerfield Beach, just south of the expected landing area.

Just south of Nicole’s expected landing is Deerfield Beach. Given the unpredictability of hurricanes, it’s also one to watch.

NASA’s next moon rocket, scheduled to launch on Nov. 18, is still in launch position and won’t be rolled back to shelter, even if Nicole delivers high winds and rain for the next few days. Watch live as this $4.1 billion launch vehicle weathers the storm.

President Biden issued a declaration of emergency in Florida on Wednesday morning. Florida counties Flagler, Palm Beach, Martin, and Volusia were issued mandatory evacuation orders for vulnerable housing, including housing on barrier islands and in low-lying areas, along with all mobile homes.

How is Tropical Storm Nicole related to climate change?

Climate change affects hurricanes. Some of these effects are evident, most notably more severe rainfall and historic flooding, along with higher storm surges. Other effects, such as how the relentlessly warming oceans affect how strong these storms grow, are an intensive and ongoing area of ​​research.
