Hermine is blamed for at least two deaths, one in Florida and a second on the Outer Banks. The storm blasted the Outer Banks on Saturday, with winds in excess of 80mph and severe flooding. Water was 5 feet deep in several villages on Hatteras Island after the Pamlico Sound spilled onto the island on the back side of Hermine. Roads were submerged and homes and businesses took on water. Conditions are slowly improving on the Outer Banks today, as crews begin yet another major clean-up of coastal Highway 12. Further north, dunes were destroyed in Nags Head and Kitty Hawk, with severe beach erosion reported.
Meanwhile, the weather is perfect here in southern Quebec. What you see is basically what you can expect through mid-week. Strong high pressure is keeping Hermine off the coast, providing spectacular sunshine and warm temperatures in the upper 20s. This is followed by cool, crisp nights, with lows in the lower teens.
