You will be redirected to the latest reports on Hermine.
Hermine made landfall in Florida early Friday morning and will continue to spin northeastward from Georgia to the Carolinas with the risk of flooding, damaging winds and tornadoes through Friday night.
Hermine made landfall as a Category 1 hurricane over the Florida Panhandle and was the first hurricane to make landfall in Florida since Wilma in 2005.
Cities at risk for major adverse weather conditions include Tampa, Orlando and Jacksonville, Florida; Savannah and Macon, Georgia; Charleston, Columbia and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina; and Fayetteville, Wilmington and Raleigh, North Carolina.
Airline delays and cancellations will occur from Florida to North Carolina. Travel may be slow, if not difficult and dangerous along portions of Interstate 95, I-75, I-20 and Route 17.
Even though Hermine will gradually weaken through Friday night, a general 4-8 inches of rain is likely with locally 10 inches possible. This is enough rain will fall to cause flash and low-lying-area flooding even though some locations were experiencing abnormally dry conditions.
Gusts from southeastern Georgia to coastal North Carolina will range between 30 and 60 mph. The strong winds will down trees and tree limbs and may cause minor property damage.
Locally severe thunderstorms will occur from central Florida to eastern North Carolina. Some of the strongest storms can produce brief, isolated tornadoes.
Even though the center of the storm is inland, there will continue to be rough surf, beach erosion and coastal flooding from northeastern Florida to northeastern North Carolina.
Bathers and boaters should heed all restrictions. To venture in the surf or on the ocean in these conditions will not only put yourself at risk, but also your would-be rescuers.
While conditions will improve in the southeastern United States this weekend, impact from Hermine will not end after North Carolina.
During Labor Day weekend, the storm is likely to re-energize over the Atlantic Ocean, perhaps as a hybrid storm or nor'easter. Hermine will slow and stall off the mid-Atlantic coast and threatens to cause days of pounding surf, beach erosion, strong winds and heavy rain in coastal areas from Virginia to New York state.

While crests will continue to work downstream along the major rivers in the eastern part of the Carolinas into next week, some unprotected areas may stay flooded until the end of September or early October.

The newest storm in the western Pacific Ocean will track through the Philippine Sea this weekend, potentially developing into a typhoon before impacting land next week.
The Carolinas continue to deal with Florence's aftermath while flooding inundated other parts of the U.S. this week.
As disaster relief efforts continue in the wake of Hurricane Florence, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has imposed restrictions on drone usage in areas affected by the storm.
Animals in the path of Florence were rescued by volunteers and taken across America to Virginia, Georgia, Tennessee and as far as Ohio and Pennsylvania.
Storms and heat will be the main factor this week as the third week of the NFL season gets underway.
Even though Florence has been completely sheared apart by strong winds over the North Atlantic, some of the leftover showers and thunderstorms may loop back around and approach the Carolina coast early next week.
