STORM UPDATE (10 a.m Oct. 18): Nestor expected to form later Friday

LISTEN: TROPICAL UPDATE: ‘A little better organized,’ storm surge and rain expected

A burgeoning tropical system is closing in on Florida’s Gulf Coast, which should begin experiencing tropical-storm-force winds and mounting storm surge Friday night. While the system, dubbed Potential Tropical Cyclone 16, has the 40 mph winds to qualify it as a storm, it still hasn’t gained the well defined center that would earn it the name Nestor. However the National Hurricane Center in its 4 a.m. update said it is “a little better organized,′ since the last advisory on Thursday.

LISTEN: Cockroach discovery closes FWB restaurant for a day

The restaurant reopened the next day, Oct. 12, when inspectors returned and observed no violations. The high-priority violation stemmed from seven live roaches found in four different locations in the restaurant — the service counter, supply hallway, mop sink area and by the hot water heater. One of the basic violations was also for five dead roaches found inside the restaurant. The intermediate violations were for an accumulation of black/green mold-like substance in the ice machine in the service area and no paper towels or mechanical hand-drying device at the handwashing sink and no paper towels in the men’s bathroom. The other basic violation was for the interior of the microwave in the food preparation area being soiled with “encrusted food debris.”

LISTEN: Okaloosa student finds threat written in bathroom

The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a threat written on a girls’ bathroom wall at Choctawhatchee High School. According to the OCSD, the threat was located by a student Tuesday morning. The student reported it to her parent who then contacted the school’s resource officer. The threat was not directed towards any specific individual and investigators say it does not appear to be credible, however standard precautionary procedures are in place. The OCSO wants to remind students such threats are second degree felonies and anyone found responsible will be charged accordingly. Anyone with information is asked to contact the OCSO at 850-651-7400 or Emerald Coast Crime Stoppers at 850-863-TIPS, EmeraldCoastCrimeStoppers.com, or by submitting a tip via the P3 Tips Mobile application.
