Palm Beach County on Thursday lifted its mandatory evacuation order in the wake of Hurricane Nicole.

The county had ordered residents in Zones A and B, barrier islands, low-lying areas, and mobile homes to evacuate starting Wednesday morning.

However, around 11 a.m. Thursday, the county said in a news release that "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."

As a result, the mandatory evacuation order has been lifted.
