So far this morning, we’ve seen several semis jackknife and/or flip.
If you can stay in today, I highly recommend it.

This was one of multiple crashes reported across Jacksonville as Tropical Storm Nicole strengthened into a hurricane and then weakened again back into a tropical storm, bringing intense winds and heavy rains.
Drivers are encouraged to stay off the roadways if possible as Nicole’s impact continues.
