Hermine is expected to hover off the New Jersey and Delaware coast Sunday and Monday, forcing beachgoers this Labor Day weekend to reschedule plans. Forecasters predict storm surge flooding from 3 to 5 feet above ground during high tide in coastal areas of Virginia and New Jersey, CNN reported.
Hermine will likely cause beach erosion, dangerous waves and rip currents from New England shores to the Hampton Roads area, according to CNN.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie declared a state of emergency for Ocean, Atlantic and Cape May counties ahead of the storm.
Hermine hit Florida early Friday morning, becoming the first hurricane, later downgraded to a tropical storm, in the state in 11 years. One person died in Florida as the hurricane approached, and another died in North Carolina Saturday amid high winds.
