Hurricane Hermine is expected to make landfall tonight as a Category 1.
Heavy rain, storm surge flooding and high winds will sweep ashore through Thursday night and early Friday.
A tornado watch is also in effect until 11 p.m. EDT Thursday for portions of northern and central Florida.
The system will then spread up the coast to the Carolinas Friday and Saturday.
Parts of the mid-Atlantic and Northeast coastline may see significant impacts from Hermine after it becomes a non-tropical area of low pressure.
Hurricane Hermine is now just hours away from landfall along Florida’s Gulf Coast. Bands of heavy rain have already moved inland and conditions will only continue to deteriorate through tonight as damaging winds and life-threatening storm surge flooding increase. Tornadoes will also be a threat.
