Tropical Storm/Hurricane Nicole
I am posting the aerial photographs below for comparison after Tropical Storm or Hurricane Nicole arrives. The St Luice River will surely be impacted. At this time, as much as ten inches of rain is predicted in some areas. Follow TS/Hurricane Nicole on EYEONLAKEO.COM

Although I have no aerials for November 2022, I have three unpublished October aerials to share. They were taken by my husband, Ed Lippisch. One can see from the photographs the impact from canals C-23, C-24, C-44 and “local basin” runoff that accompanied Hurricane Ian that struck southwest Florida as a category 4 storm on September 28, 2022 – impacting the entire state. For weeks, the rains from Ian filled the St Lucie River. But by October 28th the river is clearing up.
Post Ian, Lake Okeechobee was not discharged into the St Lucie. The impacts of Nicole we do not know at this time, but whatever they are, they will not be good.
Lake Okeechobee sits at 15.89 feet.

There will be a St Lucie River/Indian River Lagoon post Nicole update as soon as flight is possible.

If you can edit this, you should change your typo from 15.98 feet to 15.89 feet. So obsessives like me don’t get eye twitches and stuff, HA ha…Love your blogs, Jacqui. Keep up the good work.
Thank you so much Blake! Will do! I get a little nervous!!! Appreciate it!
Another obsessive here. Jacqui, would you edit this typo also?
“St Luice River”
PS – I see the “St Luice River” spelling throughout the blog, so I guess it’s not a typo! 🌞
Thank you- I think that St Lucie River (Saint) (St.) is ok but I do make a tremendous amount of spelling mistakes. I try to fix all on line but can’t fix on email blog sent out. Please let me know of anything you notice. I need all the help I can get!!! Thanks Dawn.
St. Luice River or Saint Lucie River sorry I often forget the period and write St Lucie River. Kind of like Mr and Mrs — Mr. Mrs. But I should put a period or write out! Will think of in the future!!! 🙂
Thank you so much!
Thank you Carol. Be safe.
Thanks for this, Jacqui. I’m adding it as a link on the TreasureCoast.com Hurricane Center page.
Thank you so much Dawn. I really appreciate your sharing! I’m a big fan!
