Tropical Depression Nicholas

Natural Disasters
Author: ServiceMaster Restore


Nicholas slowly crawled out of southeastern Texas overnight Tuesday into southwestern Louisiana, where the center of circulation currently sits Wednesday morning. Nicholas lost wind intensity while onshore on Tuesday and was downgraded to a tropical depression Tuesday evening. The storm will slowly meander northeastward through southern Louisiana into Friday, resulting in a multi-day threat for heavy rain.

Wind Forecast:

While widespread wind damage is no longer expected from Nicholas, isolated stronger gusts can occur from thunderstorms related to this system. Gusts from isolated tornadoes that may develop to the east of Nicholas can be life-threatening. The threat for storm surge from Nicholas across the Gulf Coast has ended.

Rain Forecast:

The primary concern from this storm going forward will be from numerous rounds of tropical downpours. These downpours will continue to contribute to flooding for portions of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and the Florida Panhandle through Thursday. The heaviest rain is most likely to fall through Wednesday over portions of southeastern Louisiana, southern Mississippi, and southwestern Alabama. Significant flooding remains a threat, particularly for low-lying areas and regions recently impacted by flooding rainfall from Ida.

Power Outages & Additional Concerns:

According to PowerOutage.US as of this morning, Texas is reporting over 115,500 outages, and Louisiana is reporting over 74,000. Flash Flood Watches are in effect along the central Gulf Coast in portions of southern Louisiana, southern Mississippi, southern Alabama, and the Florida Panhandle. A tornado or two will also be possible today in these areas.
