Post-tropical cyclone Hermine, formerly known as Hurricane Hermine, made a turn toward the ocean over the weekend. But just because it's heading out to sea doesn't mean it's going to stop being a danger to the northeastern U.S.
The National Hurricane Center advised that Hermine could generate huge waves that lead to "life-threatening surf and rip currents." It's expected to turn northwest slightly before heading out to sea for good around Tuesday. It won't make landfall, but it could be a headache for New Jersey and New York.
It's like a winter storm, where 50 miles can be the difference between a major storm and a couple inches of snow.
AccuWeather meteorologist Evan Duffey warned that even if the sun was shining, Hermine could make ocean currents very dangerous, and rough surf could lead to flooding.
New England is still expecting Hermine to pack heavy winds.
Hermine has killed two people so far; one person was killed after a tree fell on him, and a trucker was killed when winds knocked over his truck. The storm has also knocked out power for thousands.
