New information
---------------

* changes to watches and warnings:
    - all watches and warnings have been canceled

* current watches and warnings:
    - none

* storm information:
    - about 100 miles east-northeast of Panama City or about 70 miles
      northeast of Apalachicola or about 10 miles east-southeast of
      Tallahassee
    - 30.4n 84.1w
    - storm intensity 40 mph
    - movement northeast or 55 degrees at 23 mph

Situation overview
------------------

Nestor continues to weaken over the Florida Big Bend while no longer
having tropical characteristics.

Potential impacts
-----------------

* wind:
little to no impacts are anticipated at this time
across eastern Florida Panhandle... Florida Big Bend... southeastern
Alabama and southwestern Georgia.

Precautionary/preparedness actions
----------------------------------


Recovery phase - do not enter evacuated areas until officials have
given the all clear to return.


* Other preparedness information:

Check to see if everyone in your group is OK. Administer first aid to
those who are injured. If possible, call 9 1 1 for any serious
injuries. Remember, it may be difficult for emergency responders to
arrive quickly.

Check in with your emergency points of contact. Let them know your
location and status. Keep conversations short and to the point. Do
not tie up communications systems.

Check on your neighbors. If necessary, help them connect with their
points of contact.

Allow extra time for emergency vehicles to reach you as they navigate
Road hazards.

Do not attempt to return to evacuated areas until local authorities
give the all clear. Allow time for officials to inspect bridges and
overpasses and to mark washed-out roads.

When inspecting damage, use flashlights rather than candles or flamed
lanterns. Be aware of Sparks that can ignite natural gas or other
leaking flammables.


Be alert for flooded roads which could be compromised or littered
with debris. Avoid travel until water levels subside and roads have
been cleared. Do not drive through places where flood waters cover
the Road. Turn around, don't drown!

This product covers eastern Florida Panhandle... Florida Big Bend...
southeastern Alabama and southwestern Georgia

**nestor loses its tropical characteristics and becomes a
Post-tropical low pressure system**

New information
---------------

* changes to watches and warnings:
    - the Tropical Storm Warning has been cancelled for Calhoun,
      coastal Bay, inland Bay, inland Gulf, Jackson, south Walton,
      and Washington
    - the storm surge warning and Tropical Storm Warning have been
      cancelled for coastal Gulf

* current watches and warnings:
    - a Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for Gadsden, inland
      Dixie, inland Franklin, inland Jefferson, inland Taylor, inland
      Wakulla, Lafayette, Leon, Liberty, and Madison
    - a storm surge warning and Tropical Storm Warning are in effect
      for coastal Dixie, coastal Franklin, coastal Jefferson, coastal
      Taylor, and coastal Wakulla

* storm information:
    - about 70 miles south-southwest of Panama City or about 80 miles
      west-southwest of Apalachicola or about 150 miles
      west-southwest of Tallahassee
    - 29.3n 86.3w
    - storm intensity 50 mph
    - movement east-northeast or 75 degrees at 9 mph

Situation overview
------------------

Nestor has lost all tropical characteristics and is now a Post-
tropical low pressure system. The center of Post-tropical Nestor was
located around 75 miles southwest of Apalachicola, FL and was moving
ENE around 9 mph. Tropical storm force winds are being observed across
the coastal areas and coastal waters of the Florida Big Bend. Tropical
storm force winds, mainly in gusts, will spread east and inland across
portions of the Florida Big Bend through early this afternoon. Strong
winds will potentially produce life-threatening inundation from storm
surge along the FL Big Bend coast. The tornado threat is elevated
across The Big Bend, where isolated tornadoes are possible. Given the
fast moving nature of the system, the flooding rain threat is minimal,
with only 2 to 4 inches of rain expected with isolated 5 inch amounts.

Potential impacts
-----------------

* wind:
potential impacts from the main wind event are now unfolding across the
Florida Big Bend. If realized, these impacts include:
    - damage to porches, awnings, carports, sheds, and unanchored
      Mobile homes. Unsecured lightweight objects blown about.
    - Many large tree limbs broken off. A few trees snapped or
      uprooted, but with greater numbers in places where trees are
      shallow rooted. Some fences and roadway signs blown over.
    - A few roads impassable from debris, particularly within urban
      or heavily wooded places. Hazardous driving conditions on
      bridges and other elevated roadways.
    - Scattered power and communications outages.

* Surge:
protect against life-threatening surge having possible significant
impacts across Florida Big Bend coastline east of Indian Pass.
Potential impacts in this area include:
    - areas of inundation with storm surge flooding accentuated by
      waves. Damage to several buildings, mainly near the coast.
    - Sections of near-shore escape routes and secondary roads become
      weakened or washed out, especially in usually vulnerable low
      spots.
    - Major beach erosion with heavy surf breaching dunes. Strong and
      numerous rip currents.
    - Moderate damage to marinas, docks, boardwalks, and piers.
      Several small craft broken away from moorings, especially in
      unprotected anchorages.

Potential impacts from the main surge event are also now unfolding
across the Florida Big Bend coastline east of Indian Pass.

Elsewhere across eastern Florida Panhandle... Florida Big
Bend... southeastern Alabama and southwestern Georgia, little to no
impact is anticipated.

* Tornadoes:
protect against a tornado event having possible limited impacts across
the Florida Big Bend. Potential impacts include:
    - the occurrence of isolated tornadoes can hinder the execution
      of emergency plans during tropical events.
    - A few places may experience tornado damage, along with power
      and communications disruptions.
    - Locations could realize roofs peeled off buildings, chimneys
      toppled, Mobile homes pushed off foundations or overturned, large
      Tree Tops and branches snapped off, shallow-rooted trees knocked
      over, moving vehicles blown off roads, and small boats pulled
      from moorings.

Precautionary/preparedness actions
----------------------------------

Closely monitor weather.Gov, NOAA Weather Radio or local news outlets
for official storm information. Be ready to adapt to possible changes
to the forecast. Ensure you have multiple ways to receive weather
warnings.

If a Tornado Warning is issued for your area, be ready to shelter
quickly, preferably away from windows and in an interior room not
prone to flooding. If driving, scan the roadside for quick shelter
options.

warrant.

Coastal Flood Advisory, High Surf Advisory, Coastal Hazard Statement
Issued: 5:14 PM EDT Oct. 19, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Coastal flood advisory remains in effect until 8 am EDT
Sunday...
... High surf advisory remains in effect until 8 PM EDT this
evening...
... High rip current risk remains in effect through Sunday
morning...

* coastal flooding... 1 to 2 feet above mhhw especially around
the time of high tide.

* Waves and surf... surf heights of 6 to 8 feet developing late
today into Saturday.

* Impacts... life threatening surf and rip currents will be
dangerous to all level swimmers. Minor beach erosion and wave
run up to the dune line.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A high surf advisory means that high surf will affect beaches in
the advisory area, producing localized beach erosion and
dangerous swimming conditions.

There is a high risk of rip currents.

Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away
from shore, which occur most often at low spots or breaks in The
Sandbar and in the vicinity of structures such as groins, jetties
and piers. Heed the advice of lifeguards, beach patrol flags and
signs.

If you become caught in a rip current, Yell for help. Remain
calm, do not exhaust yourself and stay afloat while waiting for
help. If you have to swim out of a rip current, swim parallel to
shore and back toward the beach when possible. Do not attempt to
swim directly against a rip current as you will tire quickly.

A coastal flood advisory indicates that onshore winds and tides
will combine to generate flooding of low areas along the shore.







High Wind Advisory
Issued: 5:13 PM EDT Oct. 19, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Wind Advisory is cancelled...

The National Weather Service in Tallahassee has cancelled the
Wind Advisory.

Some gusty winds may still occur due to Nestor over the next
several hours.
