Tracking Hermine: Waves batter shore as storm churns at sea

Gusty winds and beach erosion remain the top concerns in New Jersey as Hermine churns over the Atlantic Ocean off the East Coast.



News 12 Meteorologist James Gregorio says the projected track of Hermine shifted further east, but the potential remains for the Jersey Shore to see strong winds and possible coastal flooding late into Monday and Tuesday.



The Garden State was not expected to get a direct hit from the storm, but Hermine is still expected to stall for several days a few hundred miles off the coast, and as it churns it could lash the shore with erosion and winds. There is also the potential for dangerous riptides at ocean beaches.



Little if any rain is expected, and the low humidity is making for crisp, refreshing temperatures in most areas.Gregorio says highs will reach the low 80s in most parts.



Hermine made landfall as a hurricane in Florida last week. It brought flooding and power outages to parts of Florida and Georgia before being downgraded to a tropical storm and churning up along the East Coast. The storm is blamed for two deaths, in Florida and North Carolina.
