INDIAN RIVER COUNTY – Tropical Storm Nicole has moved farther east than forecasters had predicted, moving Indian River County out of her path.
The tropical storm-related warnings issued for the county have since been rescinded. However, a flood watch remains in effect until 5 p.m. today.
As her path stands now, Tropical Storm Nicole is expected to clip the southern tip of the Florida Peninsula and move northeast out into the Atlantic Ocean.
So far, the storm system has dropped a couple inches of rain on Indian River County, sparked a tornado warning Tuesday night in the Roseland/Sebastian Inlet area, and downed power lines from strong winds.
Though the tropical storm warnings have been discontinued, there are still strong chances for thunderstorms, which could produce tornadoes and waterspouts.
