Parts of Palm Beach, Martin counties submerged from now-Tropical Storm Nicole

The impacts of Nicole were felt in Jupiter and surrounding areas.

MARTIN COUNTY, Fla. – The impacts of Nicole were felt in Jupiter and surrounding areas Wednesday into Thursday morning.

Rising water and rough waves and currents slowly took over parts of the beach overnight.

Winds picked up speed throughout the evening and Thursday morning along with sideways rain.

Now-Tropical Storm Nicole made for some dangerous road conditions.

For hours, sea walls were pounded by strong waves.

Local 10′s cameras captured the waves taking over the Palm Beach marina, flooding parts of Flagler Drive.

And along the banks of the Saint Lucie River, parts of Palm City were also covered in water earlier in the day Wednesday.

Into the night, strong gusts could be felt and residents say it could get worse before getting better.

The late season storm also pushed ocean waters inland in Port Salerno.

The boat ramps and a dock outside the popular Twisted Tuna were left submerged.

Residents in the area said they have never seen the water this high before.
