Hermine lingers off shore continuing its unsafe storm surges

PTC Hermine is moving to the north at 3 miles per hour and has maximum sustained winds of 70 miles per hour.

As of midday Sunday, Hermine was about 325 miles (520 kilometers) east-southeast of Ocean City, Maryland, in the mid-Atlantic region - far at sea, but close enough to be pummeling coastal areas with heavy rains, riptides and storm surges of up to 5 feet (1.5 meters).

Tropical storms warning continue to be in effect all along the New Jersey shore and up the coast to Rhode Island.

A tropical storm warning remained in effect Sunday night from the DE and New Jersey shores north to New York's Long Island and beyond to Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket Island off MA, but was canceled for New York City, which Berg said appeared largely out of harm's way.

"It's going to sit offshore and it is going to be a tremendous coastal event with a unsafe storm surge and lots of larger waves probably causing significant beach erosion, for the next few days", said senior hurricane specialist Daniel Brown.

Governors all along the coast announced emergency preparations.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend from the center as far as 230 miles, with maximum sustained winds near 70 mph and even higher gusts. The surge also will cause risky rough surf and strong rip currents along the beaches. "Don't think that nothing is going to happen, because something is going to happen".

The storm - which hit Florida as a Category One hurricane on Friday - was forecast to slam the city with tropical storm conditions for several days starting Sunday.

Hermine caused two deaths, damaged properties, closed beaches as far north as NY, and left hundreds of thousands without electricity from Florida to Virginia.

It left North Carolina with power outages, flooding, downed trees and power lines, while rain and tides brought flooding along Virginia's coast.

A beachgoer stands at the edge of the water, Sunday, Sept. 4, 2016, in Bridgehampton, N.Y., on the southeastern shore of Long Island, where the effects of storm system Hermine could be seen in the rough surf and a ban on swim.

Since sea levels have risen up to a foot because of global warming, the storm surges pushed by Hermine could be even more damaging, climate scientists say.

"We are already experiencing more and more flooding due to climate change in every storm", said Michael Oppenheimer, a geosciences professor at Princeton University.

In Virginia Beach, Seth Broudy, 45, owner of the Seth Broudy School of Surf, said high winds and tides flooded parking lots by his home on Saturday morning.

Authorities, including Christie, warned people to stay away from the water, and beaches in New York City and on Long Island - which would have been full of Labor-Day weekend revelers - were closed to swimmers Sunday.

In Florida, a homeless man in Marion County was killed when he was hit by a tree that fell.

On Saturday, high winds tipped over an 18-wheeler, killing its driver and shutting down a bridge in North Carolina's Outer Banks.

A handful of people came out to the beach near the famous Steel Pier amusement park, mostly to look at the rough seas.

Overnight, four people suffered minor injuries when a tornado hit a campground in Hatteras Village, Dare County, North Carolina, officials said.
