Tropical Storm Nicole batters Florida and NASA’s Artemis 1 rocket


Tropical Storm Nicole battered central Florida Thursday (Nov. 10)  where NASA’s Artemis 1 moon rocket waits on the launch pad on the state’s Space Coast.

The storm made landfall just south of Cape Canaveral, home to NASA’s Kennedy Space Center (KSC), in the early morning hours on Thursday while it was still rated as a hurricane, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) National Weather Service (NWS). NOAA radar imagery showed the storm producing sustained winds of 75 mph (opens in new tab) (120 km/h) when it reached the Florida coast around 3 a.m. (0800 GMT).
