Subtropical Storm Nicole

The Village of Key Biscayne's Emergency Management Team is monitoring the tropics and watching the current trajectory of Subtropical Storm Nicole.

Key Biscayne is currently in the cone of uncertainty and under a tropical storm watch. This will be a wide and sprawling system with impacts extending well beyond the center of the storm.

Strong gusts of wind (+25 MPH) are expected to begin today. Tropical storms force winds (+40 MPH) may impact the village as early as 8 AM on Wednesday, November 9 and into Thursday. Rain is expected to begin on Tuesday evening, resulting in street flooding. 

Extreme ocean and beachfront conditions are expected and residents are advised to use caution when near the beach. There is a potential for dangerous rip currents along the coast.

If you experience a power outage, please report the outage directly to FPL. The more people who report an outage, the better. Report a power outage by calling 1-800-4-OUTAGE (1-800-468-8243) or visit the FPL website outage page.

Stay aware of the latest news and advisories by visiting the National Hurricane Center website, and following local news channels. Click here for the Village of Key Biscayne Hurricane Readiness guide.
