Get Ready for Tropical Storm Hermine this Weekend

Tropical Storm Hermine
While Tropical Storm Hermine is gaining strength in the Gulf of Mexico and is expected to make landfall Friday in Florida, the latest projections Thursday morning for the mid-Atlantic area has changed. The storm is tracking further east than originally thought. The earlier predictions of 3″-4″ of rain for us may turn into no rain at all. If we do see any from the storm it will be Saturday afternoon into early Sunday morning.

As of 8:00 AM, the storm is strengthening still in the Gulf of Mexico, with maximum sustained winds of 65 mph and traveling NNE at 12 mph. The storm is expected to reach hurricane strength (70 MPH +) by the time it hits Florida early Friday morning.

We will continue to monitor the forecast and track of the storm. The next update is due at 11:00 AM.
