Before-and-after Hurricane Nicole photos show damage to Treasure Coast beaches

NewsBefore-and-after Hurricane Nicole photos show damage to Treasure Coast beaches

Category 1 Hurricane Nicole made landfall in southern Indispann River County Nov. 10, 2022.

The National Weather Service documented the landfall as Lexington Square Southwest in the Lexington Place subdivision north of Oslo Road and west of U.S. 1. It’s close to Oslo Middle School, which is east of 20th Street Southwest and north of Fifth Street.

The agency also listed Nicole’s landfall on the barrier island, just south of the city of Vero Beach.  The Ocean Ridge subdivision — in unincorporated Indian River County across from St. Edward’s School on State Road A1A  — lies directly east of Lexington Place.

Meteorologists said the diameter of an eye was tough to pinpoint, noting it was safe to say all of Indian River County was in the center of the storm.
