As Hurricane Hermine makes landfall in Florida as a Category 1, forecasters are predicting that the storm will continue to track up the East Coast straight to New England. Heavy rains, coastal flooding, beach erosion, high surf and rip currents are possible. The current model from Weather.com predicts that the storm will impact Southern New England, Rhode Island and the Cape & Islands by Monday.
Heavy seas, dangerous rip currents and huge surf are expected all weekend!
Here’s a clip of the waves at Ruggles in Newport, RI during Hurricane Bill in 2009. (note: locals and pros only, so stay away!)
We’ll be updating this as the track becomes more clear.
