>> Hermine churning its way up the East Coast Sunday, having ripped through Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas. Trees crashing through houses, streets under water and dangerous surfs spoiling Labor Day weekend plans. The storm which has killed at least two people possibly regaining hurricane strength. Virginia through New Jersey braced for winds exceeding 70 mph by Sunday night.
Preparations under way in Jersey's popular seaside towns with Governor Chris Christie already declaring a state of emergency in three coastal counties devastated by Hurricane Sandy back in 2012. And in New York City, downtown subway stations shut and sandbagged to prevent underground flooding. While the center of the storm is expected to remain offshore, one small shift in direction could make a devastating difference.
Projections show heavy rain and winds could also sweep the coastlines of Rhode Island and Massachusetts later in the week.
