BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — We don’t know that life is ever “normal” in Palm Beach County, but life can now resume to whatever your definition of “normal” is now that Hurricane Nicole has moved away.

Palm Beach County issued this statement just before 11 a.m. Thursday: “After proper assessment, major roads have been deemed clear, traffic signals are working and county staff completed the initial damage assessment of county buildings, beaches and the community overall. Therefore, effective Thursday, Nov. 10, at 10:30 a.m. the evacuation order has been lifted.”

Zones A and B had been ordered to evacuate as Nicole approached. While winds peaked around 50 mph give or take, that’s still enough for problems for those living in mobile homes along the coast. The nine shelters that opened yesterday are expected to close over the next few hours.

We also note that trash collection is underway in unincorporated Palm Beach County. Early information from the Solid Waste Authority suggested that trash collection would not happen today.
