JOHNS CREEK, Ga. — The Johns Creek Chamber of Commerce held its annual gala on Oct. 14 at the Atlanta Athletic Club, with the purpose to celebrate the success of the past year while enjoying one another’s company.

The event, presented by Northside Hospital, featured a seated dinner, Chamber awards ceremony, raffle prizes totaling $4,000, live music provided by the award-winning Moxie Band, and dancing.

In addition, several guests of honor took to the stage. Chamber President and CEO Robin Buckley, Kelli Buckwald representing the presenting sponsor Northside Hospital, Mayor John Bradberry and Board Chair Tim Jennette.

The mission of the Johns Creek Chamber of Commerce is to help Johns Creek businesses connect, grow and thrive. The Chamber presented several awards to companies and individuals who help fulfill this mission.

The Johns Creek 2022 CONNECT Award winner was Clear Channel Outdoors, for supporting the community during the pandemic by offering ongoing public service announcements to benefit the residents and businesses in the city.

The Johns Creek 2022 GROW Award winner was Rose Jarboe with WePartner Group. This award was given to recognize the commitment to the community to make it a better place to live, work and play. WePartner Group contributed to the success of Medlock Market and Community Expo.

The Johns Creek 2022 THRIVE Award, jokingly the “Stayin’ Alive” award, was presented to Whitney Bryant with Financial Strategies of Georgia.

He has checked all the boxes to receive the Legacy Award for his significant and tangible contributions to the Chamber.

“In the early days of the Chamber, there were just a handful of us meeting in Abbotts Bar & Grill. To see what the Chamber has become now is inspiring,” Board Chairman Tim Jennette said. “We found a way to get through this pandemic as a Chamber … Now we have a full staff along with new developments coming to Johns Creek. I am passionate about the Chamber and can’t wait to watch it grow further.”

Sign up for the Morning Brief email newsletter to get weekday updates from The Weather Channel and our meteorologists.

Nicole made landfall in Florida as a hurricane early Thursday morning, but its impacts including prolonged coastal flooding, beach erosion, strong winds, high surf, heavy rain and tornadoes will continue to impact other parts of the Southeast as well as the mid-Atlantic and Northeast through the end of the workweek.

N​icole's center pushed ashore just south of Vero Beach, Florida, at 3 a.m. EST. It's maximum sustained winds were 75 mph, making Nicole a Category 1 hurricane.

N​ow that Nicole is inland, it has weakened back to a strong tropical storm.

N​icole is just the fourth November hurricane to landfall in the mainland U.S. in records dating to the mid-19th century, and the first to do so in 37 years.

R​adar shows bands of soaking rain rotating across northern and central Florida this morning.

A​ tornado watch is in effect until 1 p.m. ET for northeast Florida and far southeast Georgia.

The large wind field of Nicole means tropical storm-force winds (39 mph or greater) extend well to the west, north and east of that center, including much of the Florida Peninsula, coastal Georgia and coastal South Carolina, according to the National Hurricane Center analysis below.

W​inds have have gusted 70 mph or greater on Florida's Atlantic coast, including in Playalinda Beach (77 mph), Cape Canaveral (75 mph), Melbourne (70 mph) and Daytona Beach (70 mph). Wind gusts over 60 mph have been clocked in Orlando.

A​ NOAA tide gauge reported major coastal flooding this morning at Port Canaveral, Florida, from a storm surge of over 5 feet.

A​ll hurricane warnings have been discontinued now that Nicole has weakened to a tropical storm.

Tropical storm warnings are in effect for a broad area of southern, central and northern Florida, southern Georgia and the South Carolina Lowcountry.​

Cities in the tropical storm warnings include Orlando, Fort Myers, Tampa and Tallahassee in Florida as well as Savannah, Georgia and Charleston, South Carolina.

A​ storm surge warning is in effect from Jupiter Inlet, Florida, to Glynn County, Georgia, a stretch of the St. Johns River in northeast Florida from Georgetown to where it empties into the Atlantic Ocean north of Jacksonville Beach, and along a part of Florida's Gulf Coast from Pasco County north to Wakulla County. This means a dangerous, life-threatening surge of water along the coast is expected in these areas.

Nicole is forecast to continue weakening today as it curls northwestward over Florida.

It will then get picked up by a cold front that turns the storm northeastward over the Southeast states on Friday. The remnant energy and moisture from Nicole will team up with that cold front to bring heavy rain and gusty winds up the East Coast into Saturday.

Below is a breakdown of what to expect from Nicole. Keep in mind that Nicole's large size means its impacts will spread far from its center, arriving sooner than, and lasting longer than, the passage of its center.

Persistent onshore winds will lead to coastal flooding along parts of the Southeast coast from Florida to the Carolinas through Thursday, or in some areas, Friday.

The National Hurricane Center's peak storm surge forecast, if it occurs at high tide, is shown below.

Given coastal flooding over multiple high tide cycles and battering waves riding atop the storm surge, major beach erosion and some damage to infrastructure is expected along Florida's east coast and parts of the Georgia coast. This is particularly the case for eastern Florida's coast damaged from Hurricane Ian in late September.

S​ome moderate to major coastal flooding is also possible as far north as South Carolina, including Charleston, where the coastal flooding is expected to peak with the Thursday mid-morning high tide. Widespread street flooding is possible in the city during this highest storm tide.

O​ne exception to this general scenario will be a part of western Florida's Gulf Coast.

Tides will start out much lower than normal due to winds blowing offshore.

But by later Thursday, water levels may quickly rise as winds switch onshore once Nicole's center moves to the north. This may lead to some coastal flooding and storm surge in the areas shown in the map below peaking Thursday night, but also lingering into Friday.

T​ropical storm-force winds (39 mph or greater winds) will continue to spread across much of the Florida Peninsula on Thursday.

These s​trong winds are expected to knock out power and could down trees, especially near the coast.

W​hile Nicole will have weakened, some strong wind gusts are possible into parts of Georgia, the Carolinas and Virginia through Friday.

N​icole's remnant teaming up with a cold front and stronger jet-stream energy could produce strong wind gusts Friday night into Saturday morning in the Northeast, from the Delmarva Peninsula and Chesapeake Bay north to New England, particularly near the coast.

T​hese wind gusts could lead to scattered tree damage and at least some power outages Friday into Saturday.


Heavy rain has already arrived in Florida and it should spread north into parts of Georgia and the Carolinas through Friday.

T​he heaviest rainfall totals are expected in parts of central and northern Florida, including some areas flooded from Hurricane Ian's rain.

Parts of the St. Johns River are still above flood stage following Ian's rain about six weeks ago. According to the NWS, the St. Johns River slow fall in recent weeks post Ian will transition to slowly rising, then steady levels above flood stage after Nicole's rain.

S​ome minor river flooding is also forecast along stretches of the Peace and Little Manatee Rivers in western Florida, which suffered major to record flooding during Ian. But this flooding will be nowhere near the magnitude of Ian's flood.

Nicole's moisture in combination with an approaching cold front will result in soaking rain for the Appalachians, mid-Atlantic and Northeast Friday into Saturday.

A broad footprint of 1 to 5 inches of rain is possible from parts of southern Florida into the Carolinas, Georgia, mid-Atlantic and Northeast, with locally higher amounts.

T​his could lead to localized flash flooding and some river flooding, particularly in the Appalachians and adjacent foothills, as well as parts of the Northeast.


As with most landfalling storms, s​ome isolated tornadoes and damaging thunderstorm wind gusts are also possible in Nicole's rainbands from Thursday through Friday.

H​ere's a look at the timing.

-T​hursday-Thursday Night: northeast Florida, southeast Georgia, central and coastal South Carolina and southern North Carolina.

-Friday-Friday Night: central and eastern Carolinas into the mid-Atlantic.

N​icole strengthened to a hurricane Wednesday evening while making landfall over Grand Bahama. A wind gust of 61 mph was recorded on the island Wednesday evening.

L​arge, pounding waves and coastal flooding are impacting much of the Southeast coast. Water levels topped out around 2 feet above normal along Florida's Atlantic coast with Wednesday morning's high tide.

F​looding was reported around homes on Anastasia Island, near St. Augustine, and on some streets in West Palm Beach, Wednesday. A sea wall was breached by storm surge in St. Lucie County near Jensen Beach. Beach erosion undermined one structure and ate away at a parking lot of a hotel in Daytona Beach Shores.

S​torm surge flooding was also captured on video Wednesday morning in Marsh Harbour, in the Abaco Islands of the Bahamas, pummeled by Hurricane Dorian in 2019. Winds have gusted up to 60 mph in Hope Town, according to the Bahamas Department of Meteorology.

M​inor street flooding was also reported around Wednesday morning's high tide in Charleston, South Carolina.

5Qs for Mark Toro on maintaining relevance in brick-and-mortar retail

In 2020, an upscale mixed-use project called Avalon in Alpharetta, Ga., logged more pre-holiday traffic than Lenox Square, North Point Mall, and Perimeter Mall—Atlanta’s premier shopping destinations.

In 2020, an upscale mixed-use project called Avalon in Alpharetta, Ga., logged more pre-holiday traffic than Lenox Square, North Point Mall, and Perimeter Mall—Atlanta’s premier shopping destinations. (North Point was handed back to its lenders and is now being redeveloped into a mixed-use project.) The lead developer of Avalon at North American Properties, Mark Toro, set out on his own last year and founded the Toro Development Company. Having announced his first big project—Medley in Johns Creek, Ga.—we caught up with him to learn more about what’s on his agenda these days.

What are some of the social drivers of the upscale, mixed-use projects you develop?

It’s primarily two factors—income and density. Couple those with high population growth potential and you’re looking at a long-term opportunity. What we’re doing is building cities within cities to capture and retain human energy. The thing that attracts people—and we all noticed this post-pandemic—is that we want to be where other people are. Human energy is our stock and trade. We build places that house that energy. We are in the hospitality and energy business.

We live in a society that is inundated with new choices. What’s hot this year is not necessarily hot five years down the road. How do you plan to cycle trendy new tenants into your projects?

We don’t build projects, we build communities. The other word we don’t use is “center.” We design the spaces so that they’re integrated with the others.

The fact that the retail offering can be shifted over the term of the community is very helpful. It refreshes the street-level experience, so five-year or one- or two-year terms and pop-ups are preferable. The shorter the term the better, because the health and welfare of the tenant is unknown at the outset. Relevance is the new credit. Freestanding retail, restaurants, boxes, detached and attached family residential…that variety of uses maintains the longevity of the community.

Tell us about Toro Development’s first big…excuse us…project called Medley in Johns Creek that will blend retail with office, town homes, multifamily and a large medical facility.

Johns Creek is the wealthiest community in the state of Georgia. It’s the first time we’ve ever seen an average household income that started with a two--$200,000. It’s close to Avalon, so we won’t offer significant soft goods. Avalon serves the entire region with soft goods. We don’t need to duplicate.

So, in effect, you’re building Johns Creek a downtown.

It will be a place to gather. If you look at a Starbucks, it’s a room where you’re alone in a room full of buzz and human activity. That’s what we provided at Colony Square and Avalon. We became the ‘third place’ where people got together.

Johns Creek was incorporated in 2007, and it’s been seeking its ‘third place.’ There’s no there there, and the name Medley is indicative of the variety of offerings we’ll bring to it. It’s not a shopping center, not an office complex, not a residential development--it’s all of those things.

Will we be seeing other new developments from your company anytime soon? Anything outside of the Southeast?

We have two other projects we’ll be announcing soon, both residues of failed developments and greenfield sites, all surrounded by dense residential communities. We’re sticking to high-growth communities in the Southeast.
