HURRICANE HERMINE DOWNGRADES TO TROPICAL STORM BUT FLOODING AND TORNADO THREATS STILL PRESENT

Storm Hermine effected coasts forecast.

Hermine has now weakened to a tropical storm since hitting landfall and moving farther inland across the Southeast states early Friday morning. Heavy rain from Hermine will continue to impact a swath from Florida to Georgia and the Carolinas on Friday. Tropical storm-force winds, isolated tornadoes and storm surge flooding are also threats in that same area.

As with most landfalling tropical cyclones, there is a threat of tornadoes embedded in rainbands. Today, this threat is focused from north Florida to the eastern Carolinas. An isolated tornado threat may continue Saturday in eastern North Carolina and far southeast Virginia. Due to this, the Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has issued a tornado watch valid until 4 p.m. EDT for coastal portions of Georgia, South Carolina and southeast North Carolina. This watch includes Charleston, South Carolina, and Savannah, Georgia.
