Nestor Drenches Florida Panhandle

Nestor Drenches Florida Panhandle

Although Tropical Storm Nestor weakened to a post-tropical cyclone a few hours before making landfall on Florida’s Panhandle, the storm still dropped several inches of rain.

As seen in this natural-color image captured by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite, that was enough to stir up sediment in coastal bays and the Gulf of Mexico.

Although Nestor brought the Southeast some welcome rain, it also spun out several tornadoes in Florida and Georgia.
