Surfer Paddles in Flooded Streets as Tropical Storm Nicole Crosses Florida

Tropical Storm Nicole brought gusty winds, heavy rain, and a dangerous storm surge to northeastern Florida on Thursday, November 10, according to the National Hurricane Center.

The storm made landfall in Florida as a Category 1 hurricane but weakened to a tropical storm, the National Weather Service said.

Video posted by Chris Gent on Thursday shows floodwater covering streets in St Augustine, nearly submerging a car. A person paddled on a surfboard through the flood, footage shows. Gent noted that “Nicole has left her mark!” Credit: Chris Gent via Storyful
