Hermine lingers offshore, bringing rough waves, rip currents

(Sept. 3, 2016, update 8:37 p.m.) Nantucket is now under a tropical-storm watch due to Tropical Storm Hermine, which is expected to begin impacting the island by Sunday evening and could last through Thursday, emergency-preparedness coordinator Dave Fronzuto said Saturday.

Coastal flooding will be still with us but much less than had been anticipated in many previous forecasts.

The system spun away from the East Coast on Sunday, removing the threat of heavy rain.

Dennis Feltgen of the National Hurricane Center said Sunday "We're not looking at a landfall", adding Hermine is just sitting and pushing the water up along the coast making storm surge a great concern. Those warnings were replaced by coastal flood warnings, which have now been downgraded to a coastal flood advisory, effective through 5 a.m. Tuesday. A tropical storm warning was in effect from north of Fenwick Island, Delaware, to Sagamore Beach, Massachusetts, including Block Island, Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket and Delaware Bay south of Slaughter Beach.

According to the National Weather Service report at 5 p.m., winds are expected to increase Sunday night into Monday, with gusts to 40 or 50 miles per hour possible along the immediate coast. There has been significant oceanfront beach erosion in New Jersey.

With sustained winds of 70 miles per hour, Hermine is expected to remain near hurricane strength through Monday night, but will gradually weaken by Tuesday morning, the hurricane center said.

Hermine has spared New Jersey its worst fears, although the post-tropical cyclone is leaving its mark this Labor Day.

"My number one concern is the risky rip currents we are going to experience", Mayor Bill de Blasio said in a statement.

The weather will remain mostly cloudy throughout the Labor Day holiday, he said.

New York City planned to close its beaches Monday because of rip currents, and the ban could extend into Tuesday, depending on weather conditions, officials said. "Even though the forecast has improved, the waters will still be extremely risky".

One person died Saturday when a tractor-trailer overturned while crossing a bridge in eastern North Carolina amid high winds from Hermine, a spokesman for the state's Department of Public Safety, Michael Baker, said.

Christie said he doesn't expect any evacuations will be needed, assuming the storm continues to move eastward, but he urged people to monitor the storm and not be lulled into a false sense of security.
