FLORIDA: Late Saturday, Nestor raced across Georgia as a post-tropical cyclone hours after the former tropical storm spawned a tornado that damaged homes and a school in central Florida.
The National Hurricane Center stated that the storm made landfall on St. Vincent island, a nature preserve off Florida’s northern Gulf Coast in a lightly populated area of the state.
The Storm escalated threats of possible twisters and severe thunderstorms elsewhere in the South while all tropical storm and surge warnings had been canceled by afternoon in Florida.
Nestor was expected to bring 1 to 3 inches of rain to drought-stricken inland area on its march across a swath of the U.S. Southeast.
