Nestor now a post tropical cyclone as it heads towards the Panhandle

Nestor has now lost its tropical characteristics and has become a post tropical low pressure system. According to the National Hurricane Center, it is expected to continue a east northeast motion that will continue to move inland towards the Florida Panhandle as it makes it way offshore of the coast of North Carolina into the western Atlantic.

However, it still has near 50 mph winds with higher gusts with little change in strength expected as it reaches the Florida Coast.

Nestor is expected to produce up to 4 inches of rain across the southeast portion of the state, with isolated maximum amounts of up to 8 inches.

There is also a few possible tornadoes in central and northern Florida. Governor Ron Desantis confirmed reports Saturday afternoon of tornado damage in Polk County and says that he will work with the state's emergency management team to survey the damage and help the affected areas.

There is also reports of a semi trailer that overturned on I-4 that rolled over on top of an SUV with a family visiting from Illinois, but thankfully no one was hurt.

There has also been significant damage to roofs and trees at the Twelve Oaks Mobile Home Park in Seminole County.
