More than two dozen bricks of cocaine were reported to have washed ashore on Cocoa Beach, on Florida's Space Coast.

A Melbourne police officer conducting a foot patrol on Paradise Beach was flagged down by a beach reveler who reported a suspicious looking package had washed ashore. A duffel bag containing 15 kilos - worth $300,000 to $450,000 - was also found on the beach and handed over to police in Brevard County.

At around 8 a.m. Tuesday, a beachgoer alerted a police officer to the suspicious package.

Melbourne police were now investigating the brick that had a word beginning with DIAMANT on the packaging.

Twenty packages of the drug were found by police after a local out for an early morning beach walk raised the alarm. "Once the investigation is over, it [brick of cocaine] will be destroyed".

The NHC states the Atlantic Coast from the Florida Peninsula north of West Palm Beach through Georgia and across southeast Virginia could see 3-6 inches of rain.

Storm Dorian, now a Category 2, struck on the east coast of central Florida on Tuesday night, having already wreaked havoc and prompted devastation in the Bahamas, killing seven.

Police advised at the time that there was "a small possibility that further packages may turn up on the beach", and asked members of the public to contact them immediately if they do.

Police said one kilo of cocaine is estimated to be worth $20,000 to $30,000 in the Orlando area.

"We are lucky", Mall said Wednesday, speaking for the City of Melbourne.
