Florida is bracing for another Hurricane. This time, it’s Nicole. The tropical storm officially strengthened to a Category 1 hurricane on Wednesday, officials say. That means roof damage is especially likely.
Experts warn that despite the relatively low hurricane rating, the storm’s greatest damage may come in the form of devastating storm surges. Forecasts anticipate a water level rise of 3-6 feet, with some areas experiencing even higher water levels. A storm surge could leave a wide trail of destruction, not only where the hurricane makes landfall, but also hundreds of miles away.
Wind gusts between 60-80 mph are expected, with a possibility of gusts up to 100 mph. With winds of this magnitude, residents can expect damage to structures, including those already compromised by Hurricane Ian. Damage from Hurricane Nicole may include flooding, broken windows, roof damage, and more.
Following Hurricane Nicole, it is critical that property owners assess their structures as soon as possible so that rebuilding and repair can be set in motion. Immediately addressing hurricane impacts like roof damage helps prevent structural problems from worsening and new issues from developing as a result of delays.
