Hermine pushes east; flooding and erosion still concerns

Let's kick off the day with the good news:

Accordingly to various reports, Hermine's easterly track seems to have spared South Jersey and the Wildwoods from the "worst case scenarios" predicted for this storm.

So, what's next?

While many will call this "weather event" a dud (and perhaps, rightly so), the effects of Hermine will still be felt over the next few days.

Tidal surges will still be an issue as the storm moves out to sea, with erosion - we've already seen some beach damage in North Wildwood - and moderate to perhaps major flooding possible in some areas.

If you are on the island or still planning to visit, close attention to the tides (listed below). Monday's high tides could bring about the largest surges due to strong winds, though, thankfully, not nearly as significant as forecasted.

Bottom line - continue to take precautions, be smart, and be safe, everyone!

Sunday High Tides

10:38 a.m.  &  10:49 p.m.

Monday High Tides

11:17 a.m.  &  11:27 p.m.
