Tropical storm Hermine is once again gaining strength, the U.S. National Weather Service said Sunday, posing a “danger of life-threatening inundation” from New Jersey to Connecticut.”
“The event is far from over,” said National Hurricane Center meteorologist Dennis Feltgen.
As of midday Sunday, Hermine was about 520 kilometers east-southeast of Ocean City, Maryland in the mid-Atlantic region – far out to sea, but close enough to be pummeling coastal areas with heavy rain, riptides and storm surges of up to 1.5 meters.
The storm, now heading north by northeast, is expected to take a northern or northwestern turn. Residents in states as far north as Connecticut are expected to feel its damaging impact. READ MORE OF THIS REPORT
