Hurricane Nicole, the powerful storm that hit Bermuda days after Hurricane Matthew pummeled the Caribbean, is blowing further out to sea. All storm warnings for Atlantic costal areas have ceased, according to the National Hurricane Center, leaving little more than rip currents and large swells in Bermuda and along the east coast of the United States and Canada.

Even though its run was short, Nicole still did plenty of damage to the British island territory. On Thursday and Friday, local government closed schools and government offices, and thousands were left without power, according to the Royal Gazette.
