Residents return after more Daytona Beach Shores condos checked for structural concerns

VOLUSIA COUNTY, Fla. — People at Central Florida’s coast are continuing to get back on their feet following the impact of Hurricane Nicole.


Many people at the beaches were forced out of their homes when Nicole hit.

After some buildings in the Daytona Beach Shores area were evacuated over structural concerns, some residents are starting to move back in.
