Orlando Theme Parks Now Under State of Emergency As Florida Keeps Watch On Subtropical Storm Nicole

The very latest from Subtropical Storm Nicole is that every Orlando theme park is now under a state of emergency.


As Florida keeps a watchful eye on the strengthening Nicole, it has prompted Gov. Ron DeSantis to issue a state of emergency declaration for 34 of the state’s 67 counties ahead of the storm’s arrival later this week.


Brevard, Flagler, Lake, Orange, Osceola, Polk, Seminole, Sumter and Volusia counties are listed in the state of emergency.


The state of emergency was declared ahead of expected severe weather from Subtropical Storm Nicole in the coming days.


We can expect to see heavy rain, and high winds in the Central Florida area from Nicole.

Subtropical Storm Nicole's updated track shows her to strengthen to near hurricane strength by landfall on Florida's east coast Wednesday overnight.


Brevard County is under a hurricane watch, with a tropical storm watch in effect for Orange, Seminole, Osceola, Volusia, Flagler and Lake counties.


These will likely be upgraded to warnings as Nicole gets closer.


The main threat from Nicole is coastal erosion on the East Coast, and inland heavy rain and flooding threat.


A storm surge watch is effect for the entire east coast of Florida. Peak storm surge is forecast 3-5ft, but may be increased as Nicole approaches.


We will also see higher than normal astronomical tides. Nicole's wind and storm surge may impact at least four high tide cycles.
