Nicole Passes Bermuda! (credit: Meteorologist Jordan Rabinowitz and the NWS National Hurricane Center)
DISCUSSION: As of this evening, Hurricane Nicole has weakened to a Category 2 hurricane with maximum sustained winds of 110 mph with higher gusts closer to the center. That being said, Hurricane Nicole has left a strong memory for the island of Bermuda as it made landfall just after daybreak this morning with the full force of a Category 3 hurricane. Both prior to, during, and after the point at which Nicole made an official landfall, there were severe long-lasting impacts to both the coastlines and points inland as well (i.e., both mentally and physically) throughout Bermuda. If there is any good news, it would be that Hurricane Nicole is now positioned well northeast of Bermuda as it continues heading further into the North Atlantic Ocean.
Attached above the aforementioned weather briefing on Hurricane Nicole is another video which is comprised of several different perspectives on the impacts from Nicole by people who were positioned throughout Bermuda. Both videos are definitely worth watching as they will help to lend further insight into the details surrounding the actual impacts which Hurricane Nicole delivered overnight and throughout the earlier part of today both in and around the island of Bermuda!
