The National Hurricane Center has warned that tropical storm Nicole is likely to reach Florida today. So, expect heavy rains, high waves, storm surges, strong tropical storms, and hurricane-force winds in the area. To minimize destruction and to avert any potential problems, authorities plan to stop flights from some major airports in the USA until further notice. Also, people who have booked flights to USA to these affected areas are advised to change their schedules as per the storm conditions in the region.

Due to the strong tropical storm, residents have been instructed to move away from barrier islands, low-lying areas, and mobile homes in Florida. This approaching storm is expected to endanger properties and life. In this region, many areas are still overwhelmed by the devastation caused by Hurricane Ian, which made landfall as a Category 4 storm on Florida’s southwestern Gulf Coast in late September before dumping heavy rain across much of the state’s central region. Heavy rain is expected to fall on areas still recovering from Ian’s flooding, according to forecasters. The National Hurricane Center’s Advisory stated that tropical storm force winds extend up to 610 km from the storm’s center.

The National Hurricane Center in Miami also issued a hurricane warning for Grand Bahama Island, Berry Islands, Abacos, and Bimini. Tropical storm warnings remained in effect for other areas of the Bahamas, including Eleuthera, New Province, and Andros Island. So, authorities warned that as the storm approaches, some airports like Orlando International Airport and seaports will close and will only resume operations when it is safe to do so. 

So, if you have plans to visit any of these places in the USA during this time or if your flight is already booked, make sure to stay updated on the weather reports to change your flight schedules as needed. And plan to book your international flights to USA only when the storm has weakened and it is safe to travel again to the affected areas.
