Dangerous tides destroy Florida beachfront backyard ahead of Hurricane Nicole
VOLUSIA COUNTY, Fla. - The backyard of a home in Volusia County was nearly destroyed Wednesday as dangerous ocean waves from Hurricane Nicole made their way to the eastern coastline.
The beachfront home, located in Wilbur-by-the-Sea, appears to have lost most of its backyard as Hurricane Nicole brings in high tides ahead of its landfall in Florida.
Volusia County issued a mandatory curfew Wednesday from 7 p.m. until 7 a.m. Thursday as Hurricane Nicole prepares to make landfall in Florida as a Category 1 hurricane.
The storm is already wreaking havoc on other parts of Volusia County — like Daytona Beach Shores where a beach safety building has collapsed.
A mandatory evacuation was issued for Volusia County residents which went into effect Wednesday at 9 a.m. for the following people:
- Residents who live east of the Intracoastal Waterway
- Mobile and manufactured home dwellers east of Interstate 95
- Residents who live in low-lying areas and other areas prone to flooding
- Residents of any campsites and RV parks
