Hurricane Hermine Update and Damage Report

Palm Trees Before A Tropical Storm or Hurricane

Hurricane Hermine is still on people’s minds several days after it made landfall on Florida’s northwest coast.

The storm roared ashore on Friday, causing damage to trees and utility lines, and causing loss of power to thousands in its path. The category 1 hurricane had sustained winds of 80 mph during part of its course across Florida, according to NBC News.

The destruction didn’t stop there. The storm kept its march up the east coast through the Labor Day weekend and caused massive flooding in its wake. CNN reports the storm ruined Labor Day weekend plans for some and caused misery for others who suffered from extensive flooding and related damages.

Various news reports as the Labor Day weekend came to a close indicated Hermine, downgraded to a tropical storm, would continue to move northeast, with the likelihood of additional storm damage and coastal flooding.
