Heavy rain and stormy winds continued across the states, but areas near Palm Beach County reprieved from deluges after a wet Wednesday.
It was seen near Vero Beach that the transformers were exploding continuously, and the area lost power. Stormy winds calm a bit but still blow strongly.

Weather Chief meteorologist Steve Weagle said, “This is a storm that lost a lot of its energy when very dry air wrapped around the center. That happened in the last six hours and lost a lot of punch.”
According to the NHC, on Thursday morning, the eye of Nicole will get across central Florida, perhaps arise over the far northeastern Inlet of Mexico on Thursday afternoon, and afterward, get across the Georgia and Florida Panhandle on Thursday night and Friday.
Authorities in Indian Waterway Region shut the extensions to the boundary islands soon after 12 PM Thursday since they decided they were impassible by non-emergency traffic.
A meteorological center close to Stuart Beach recorded a storm miles per hour, while a station at Juno Beach detailed a blow each hour.
A weather station at Sebastian Bay had a blow of 66 miles each hour, and Vero Beach had a decisive wind blow 58 miles each hour, as per the Weather Service in Melbourne.
Tropical gale conditions will probably happen through 6 a.m. Thursday with 45 to 65 mile-per-hour wind blasts and 1 to 3 inches of a downpour. During this equivalent period, inhabitants on the Treasure Coast will encounter 50 to 75-mile-per-hour wind blasts along with 2 to 4 inches of deluges.
From 6 a.m. to early afternoon, we can anticipate that conditions should improve; however, 30 to 50-mile-per-hour wind blasts will, in any case, be conceivable in Palm Beach. An extra 1 to 2 inches of a downpour could happen during this time.
The Fortune Coast may as yet see 45 to 65-mile-per-hour twists blasts with 1 to 2 inches of a downpour.
Nicole is supposed to debilitate while getting across Florida and the southeastern U.S. on Thursday through Friday and turn into a post-cyclone by Friday afternoon.
