Tropical Storm Nestor, at its strongest, was a tropical storm containing sustained winds up to 60mph and a central pressure of 996mb. The main impacts to our region revolved mostly around strong winds along our coastal locations, and storm surge ranging from 1 to 3 feet along the coast of the FL Panhandle and Big Bend. While impacts besides surge were mostly limited across our region, heavy rain and tornadoes did cause much more damage across the Peninsula of FL.
