Hurricane Headed To Florida
Favorite

 

On Thursday, September 1st, at 1:30 p.m. EST time, the National Hurricane Center upgraded Tropical Storm Hermine (HER-MEAN) to a category one hurricane.


Hurricane Hermine is set to make landfall in Florida early Friday, September 2nd, making it the first hurricane to do so since Hurricane Wilma in 2005.


Residents of Florida can expect heavy rain, high winds, and storm surge flooding. There is a possibility of Hermine dropping 10 to 15 inches of rain. Storm surge could be up to 9 feet. Winds are expected to be at least 74 mph.


Governor Rick Scott placed 51 counties under a state of emergency and closed state offices for the day. State Attorney General Pam Bondi set anti-price-gouging regulations in motion, making it so that retailers are not allowed to raise prices on gas, lumber, water, and anything else residents need to survive.


Hermine is expected to make its way to the coast of the Carolinas during the weekend.
