It’s technically a hurricane, but barely. New updates show that Tropical Storm Nicole is now Hurricane Nicole. Winds at the 11p.m. update are around 75 MPH which are expected to die down as the storm makes landfall. Tampa weather guru Dennis Phillips has reported all night that he is not worried. Tampa residents can expect some fallen tree branches, maybe some patio screen damage, but no major destruction. The worst of the storm is expected to hit around 7am in the Tampa Bay area. If you can, avoid driving tomorrow morning.
