Situation overview
------------------

Tropical Storm Hermine continues to gradually strengthen across
the southeastern Gulf of Mexico. The storm is forecast to
move towards the Panhandle and Big Bend region of Florida Thursday
and make landfall Thursday night. The storm is now forecast to
reach hurricane strength before making landfall. A Tropical
Storm Warning is now in effect for inland portions of southeast
Georgia and the Suwannee Valley area of northeast Florida.
Otherwise the remainder of the tropical storm watches are still in
effect for the rest of the forecast region except Flagler County.

Potential impacts
-----------------

* flooding rain:
prepare for life-threatening rainfall flooding having possible
extensive impacts across inland northeast Florida and southeast
Georgia potential impacts include:
    - major rainfall flooding may prompt many evacuations and rescues.
    - Rivers and tributaries may rapidly overflow their banks in
      multiple places. Small streams, creeks, canals, arroyos, and
      ditches may become dangerous rivers. Flood
      control systems and barriers may become stressed.
    - Flood waters can enter many structures within multiple
      communities, some structures becoming uninhabitable or washed
      away. Many places where flood waters may cover escape routes.
      Streets and parking lots become rivers of moving water with
      underpasses submerged. Driving conditions become dangerous.
      Many Road and bridge closures with some weakened or washed out.

Prepare for dangerous rainfall flooding having possible limited to
significant impacts across coastal northeast Florida and southeast Georgia.

* Wind:
prepare for dangerous wind having possible significant impacts across
the Suwannee Valley and inland southeast Georgia. Potential impacts
in this area include:
    - some damage to roofing and siding materials, along with damage
      to porches, awnings, carports, and sheds. A few buildings
      experiencing window, door, and garage door failures. Mobile
      homes damaged, especially if unanchored. Unsecured lightweight
      objects become dangerous projectiles. Winds and wind gusts will
      be stronger along the banks of large rivers, such as the Saint
      Johns and Brunswick rivers, on high profile bridges and near
      marshes.
    - Several large trees snapped or uprooted, but with greater
      numbers in places where trees are shallow rooted. Several
      fences and roadway signs blown over.
    - Some roads impassable from large debris, and more within urban
      or heavily wooded places. A few bridges, causeways, and access
      routes impassable. Winds and wind gusts will be stronger along
      the banks of large rivers, such as the Saint Johns and
      Brunswick rivers, on high profile bridges and near marshes.
    - Scattered power and communications outages, but more prevalent
      in areas with above ground lines.

Also, prepare for hazardous wind having possible limited impacts
across the rest of northeast Florida.

* Tornadoes:
prepare for a tornado event having possible limited impacts across
northeast Florida and southeast Georgia. Potential impacts include:
    - the occurrence of isolated tornadoes can hinder the execution
      of emergency plans during tropical events.
    - A few places may experience tornado damage, along with power
      and communications disruptions.
    - Locations could realize roofs peeled off buildings, chimneys
      toppled, Mobile homes pushed off foundations or overturned,
      large Tree Tops and branches snapped off, shallow-rooted trees
      knocked over, moving vehicles blown off roads, and small boats
      pulled from moorings.

* Surge:
prepare for locally hazardous surge having possible significant
impacts across coastal southeast Georgia. Potential impacts in
this area include:
    - areas of inundation with storm surge flooding accentuated by
      waves. Storm surge may extend far inland along rivers and
      creeks and you may still experience flooding even though you
      are not along the immediate coast. If you are asked to evacuate
      it is because you are in, or near, an area that has been
      identified as being subject to storm surge, please heed the
      advice of emergency management officials! Damage to several
      buildings, mainly near the coast.
    - Sections of near-shore escape routes and secondary roads become
      weakened or washed out, especially in usually vulnerable low
      spots.
    - Major beach erosion with heavy surf breaching dunes and beach
      access areas. Strong and numerous rip currents.
    - Moderate damage to marinas, docks, boardwalks, and piers.
      Several small craft broken away from moorings, especially in
      unprotected anchorages.

Also, prepare for locally hazardous surge having possible limited
impacts across coastal northeast Florida.

Elsewhere across northeast Florida and southeast Georgia, little to
no impact is anticipated.

Precautionary/preparedness actions
----------------------------------

Now is the time to check your emergency plan and take necessary
actions to secure your home or business. Deliberate efforts should be
underway to protect life and property. Ensure that your emergency
supplies kit is stocked and ready.

When making safety and preparedness decisions, do not focus on the
exact forecast track as there are inherent forecast uncertainties
which must be taken into account.

If you live in a place that is particularly vulnerable to high wind,
such as a Mobile home, an upper floor of a high rise building, or on
a boat, plan to move to safe shelter. Take enough supplies for you
and your family for several days.

If you live in a place particularly vulnerable to flooding, such as
near the ocean or a large Inland Lake, in a low lying or poor
drainage area, in a valley or canyon, or near an already swollen
river, plan to move to safe shelter on higher ground

Always heed the advice of local officials and comply with any orders
that are issued. Do not needlessly jeopardize your life or the lives
of others.

When securing your property, outside preparations should be conducted
as soon as possible before conditions deteriorate. The onset of
strong gusty winds and heavy rain can cause certain preparedness
activities to become unsafe.

Be sure to let friends and other family members know of your
intentions and whereabouts for surviving the storm. For emergency
purposes, have someone located away from the threatened area serve as
your Point of contact. Share vital contact information with others.
Keep cell phones handy and well charged.

Be a good samaritan and check on those who may not be fully aware of
the situation or who are unable to make personal preparations.

Visitors to the area should become familiar with nearby surroundings.
If you are a visitor, know the name of the County or Parish in which
you are located and where it is relative to current watches and
warnings. If staying at a hotel, ask the management staff about their
onsite disaster plan. Listen for evacuation orders, especially
pertaining to area visitors.

Closely monitor NOAA Weather Radio or other local news outlets for
official storm information. Listen for possible changes to the
forecast.

Also, prepare for hazardous wind having possible limited impacts
across the rest of northeast Florida.

* Tornadoes:
prepare for a tornado event having possible limited impacts across
northeast Florida and southeast Georgia. Potential impacts include:
    - the occurrence of isolated tornadoes can hinder the execution
      of emergency plans during tropical events.
    - A few places may experience tornado damage, along with power
      and communications disruptions.
    - Locations could realize roofs peeled off buildings, chimneys
      toppled, Mobile homes pushed off foundations or overturned,
      large Tree Tops and branches snapped off, shallow-rooted trees
      knocked over, moving vehicles blown off roads, and small boats
      pulled from moorings.

* Surge:
prepare for locally hazardous surge having possible significant
impacts across coastal southeast Georgia. Potential impacts in
this area include:
    - areas of inundation with storm surge flooding accentuated by
      waves. Storm surge may extend far inland along rivers and
      creeks and you may still experience flooding even though you
      are not along the immediate coast. If you are asked to evacuate
      it is because you are in, or near, an area that has been
      identified as being subject to storm surge, please heed the
      advice of emergency management officials! Damage to several
      buildings, mainly near the coast.
    - Sections of near-shore escape routes and secondary roads become
      weakened or washed out, especially in usually vulnerable low
      spots.
    - Major beach erosion with heavy surf breaching dunes and beach
      access areas. Strong and numerous rip currents.
    - Moderate damage to marinas, docks, boardwalks, and piers.
      Several small craft broken away from moorings, especially in
      unprotected anchorages.

Also, prepare for locally hazardous surge having possible limited
impacts across coastal northeast Florida.

Elsewhere across northeast Florida and southeast Georgia, little to
no impact is anticipated.

Precautionary/preparedness actions
----------------------------------

Now is the time to check your emergency plan and take necessary
actions to secure your home or business. Deliberate efforts should be
underway to protect life and property. Ensure that your emergency
supplies kit is stocked and ready.

When making safety and preparedness decisions, do not focus on the
exact forecast track as there are inherent forecast uncertainties
which must be taken into account.

If you live in a place that is particularly vulnerable to high wind,
such as a Mobile home, an upper floor of a high rise building, or on
a boat, plan to move to safe shelter. Take enough supplies for you
and your family for several days.

If you live in a place particularly vulnerable to flooding, such as
near the ocean or a large Inland Lake, in a low lying or poor
drainage area, in a valley or canyon, or near an already swollen
river, plan to move to safe shelter on higher ground

Always heed the advice of local officials and comply with any orders
that are issued. Do not needlessly jeopardize your life or the lives
of others.

When securing your property, outside preparations should be conducted
as soon as possible before conditions deteriorate. The onset of
strong gusty winds and heavy rain can cause certain preparedness
activities to become unsafe.

Be sure to let friends and other family members know of your
intentions and whereabouts for surviving the storm. For emergency
purposes, have someone located away from the threatened area serve as
your Point of contact. Share vital contact information with others.
Keep cell phones handy and well charged.

Be a good samaritan and check on those who may not be fully aware of
the situation or who are unable to make personal preparations.

Visitors to the area should become familiar with nearby surroundings.
If you are a visitor, know the name of the County or Parish in which
you are located and where it is relative to current watches and
warnings. If staying at a hotel, ask the management staff about their
onsite disaster plan. Listen for evacuation orders, especially
pertaining to area visitors.

Closely monitor NOAA Weather Radio or other local news outlets for
official storm information. Listen for possible changes to the
forecast.

    - the occurrence of isolated tornadoes can hinder the execution
      of emergency plans during tropical events.
    - A few places may experience tornado damage, along with power
      and communications disruptions.
    - Locations could realize roofs peeled off buildings, chimneys
      toppled, Mobile homes pushed off foundations or overturned,
      large Tree Tops and branches snapped off, shallow-rooted trees
      knocked over, moving vehicles blown off roads, and small boats
      pulled from moorings.

* Surge:
prepare for locally hazardous surge having possible limited impacts
across coastal southeast Georgia. Potential impacts in this area
include:
    - localized inundation with storm surge flooding mainly along
      immediate shorelines and in low-lying spots, or in areas
      farther inland near where higher surge waters move ashore.
      Marshes and estuaries will be fully flooded at high tide.
      Populated areas likely to flood include those threatened by
      flooding during strong northeasters or which have flooded
      during past tropical storms.
    - Sections of near-shore roads and parking lots become overspread
      with surge water. Driving conditions dangerous in places where
      surge water covers the Road.
    - Moderate beach erosion. Heavy surf also breaching dunes, mainly
      in usually vulnerable locations. Strong rip currents.
    - Minor to locally moderate damage to marinas, docks, boardwalks,
      and piers. A few small craft broken away from moorings.

Precautionary/preparedness actions
----------------------------------

Now is the time to check your emergency plan and take necessary
actions to secure your home or business. Deliberate efforts should be
underway to protect life and property. Ensure that your emergency
supplies kit is stocked and ready.

When making safety and preparedness decisions, do not focus on the
exact forecast track as there are inherent forecast uncertainties
which must be taken into account.

If you live in a place that is particularly vulnerable to high wind,
such as a Mobile home, an upper floor of a high rise building, or on
a boat, plan to move to safe shelter. Take enough supplies for you
and your family for several days.

If you live in a place particularly vulnerable to flooding, such as
near the ocean or a large Inland Lake, in a low lying or poor
drainage area, in a valley or canyon, or near an already swollen
river, plan to move to safe shelter on higher ground.

Always heed the advice of local officials and comply with any orders
that are issued. Do not needlessly jeopardize your life or the lives
of others.

When securing your property, outside preparations should be conducted
as soon as possible before conditions deteriorate. The onset of
strong gusty winds and heavy rain can cause certain preparedness
activities to become unsafe.

Visitors to the area should become familiar with nearby surroundings.
If you are a visitor, know the name of the County in which
you are located and where it is relative to current watches and
warnings. If staying at a hotel, ask the management staff about their
onsite disaster plan. Listen for evacuation orders, especially
pertaining to area visitors.

Closely monitor NOAA Weather Radio or other local news outlets for
official storm information. Listen for possible changes to the
forecast.

    - 25.5n 87.4w
    - storm intensity 45 mph
    - movement north-northeast or 30 degrees at 7 mph

Situation overview
------------------

Tropical Storm Hermine continues to strengthen across the southeastern
Gulf of Mexico. The storm is forecast to move towards the Panhandle
and Big Bend region of Florida Thursday and make landfall Thursday
night into Friday morning. The storm may reach hurricane strength
before making landfall. Tropical storm watches remain in effect for
all of the region except Flagler County.

Potential impacts
-----------------

* flooding rain:
prepare for dangerous rainfall flooding having possible significant
impacts across inland portions of northeast Florida and southeast Georgia.
Potential impacts include:
    - moderate rainfall flooding may prompt several evacuations and
      rescues.
    - Rivers and tributaries may quickly become swollen with swifter
      currents and overspill their banks in a few places, especially
      in usually vulnerable spots. Small streams, creeks, canals,
      arroyos, and ditches overflow.
    - Flood waters can enter some structures or weaken foundations.
      Several places may experience expanded areas of rapid
      inundation at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor drainage
      areas. Some streets and parking lots take on moving water as
      storm drains and retention ponds overflow. Driving conditions
      become hazardous. Some Road and bridge closures.

Prepare for locally hazardous rainfall flooding having possible
limited impacts across coastal northeast Florida and southeast Georgia.

* Wind:
prepare for dangerous wind having possible significant impacts across
southeast Georgia and the Suwannee River basin of northeast Florida.
Potential impacts in this area include:
    - some damage to roofing and siding materials, along with damage
      to porches, awnings, carports, and sheds. A few buildings
      experiencing window, door, and garage door failures. Mobile
      homes damaged, especially if unanchored. Unsecured lightweight
      objects become dangerous projectiles. Winds and wind gusts will
      be stronger along the banks of large rivers, such as the Saint
      Johns and Brunswick rivers, on high profile bridges and near
      marshes.
    - Several large trees snapped or uprooted, but with greater
      numbers in places where trees are shallow rooted. Several
      fences and roadway signs blown over.
    - Some roads impassable from large debris, and more within urban
      or heavily wooded places. A few bridges, causeways, and access
      routes impassable. Winds and wind gusts will be stronger along
      the banks of large rivers, such as the Saint Johns and
      Brunswick rivers, on high profile bridges and near marshes.
    - Scattered power and communications outages, but more prevalent
      in areas with above ground lines.

Also, prepare for hazardous wind having possible limited impacts
across across the rest of northeast Florida.

Issued: 11:55 PM EDT Aug. 31, 2016 – National Weather Service

... Tropical storm watch remains in effect...

* locations affected
    - Jacksonville Beach

* wind
    - latest local forecast: below tropical storm force wind
        - peak wind forecast: 20-30 mph with gusts to 45 mph

    - current threat to life and property: moderate
        - the wind threat has remained nearly steady from the
          previous assessment.
        - Remain braced against the reasonable threat for strong
          tropical storm force wind of 58 to 73 mph.
        - To be safe, efforts should fully focus on protecting life.
          Properties remain subject to significant wind impacts.
        - Now is the time to hide from the wind. Failure to
          adequately shelter may result in serious injury, or in some
          cases loss of life. Remain sheltered until the hazardous
          wind subsides.

    - Potential impacts: unfolding
        - potential impacts from the main wind event are unfolding.
        - The extent of realized impacts will depend on the actual
          strength, duration, and exposure of the wind as experienced
          at particular locations.

* Storm surge
    - latest local forecast: localized storm surge possible
        - peak storm surge inundation: the potential for up to 2 feet
          above ground somewhere within surge prone areas
        - window of concern: early Thursday afternoon until early
          Saturday afternoon

    - current threat to life and property: elevated
        - the storm surge threat has remained nearly steady from the
          previous assessment.
        - Emergency plans should include a reasonable threat for peak
          storm surge flooding of greater than 1 foot above ground.
        - To be safe, prepare for the potential of limited storm
          surge flooding impacts. Efforts should now be brought to
          completion before conditions deteriorate.
        - Localized inundation is possible. Follow the instructions
          of local officials. Consider voluntary evacuation if
          recommended. Leave immediately if evacuation orders are
          issued.

    - Potential impacts: limited
        - localized inundation with storm surge flooding mainly along
          immediate shorelines and in low-lying spots, or in areas
          farther inland near where higher surge waters move ashore.
          Marshes and estuaries will be fully flooded at high tide.
          Populated areas likely to flood include those threatened by
          flooding during strong northeasters or which have flooded
          during past tropical storms.
        - Sections of near-shore roads and parking lots become
          overspread with surge water. Driving conditions dangerous
          in places where surge water covers the Road.
        - Moderate beach erosion. Heavy surf also breaching dunes,
          mainly in usually vulnerable locations. Strong rip currents.
        - Minor to locally moderate damage to marinas, docks,
          boardwalks, and piers. A few small craft broken away from
          moorings.

* Flooding rain
    - latest local forecast: Flood Watch is in effect
        - peak rainfall amounts: additional 2-4 inches, with locally
          higher amounts

    - current threat to life and property: elevated
        - the flooding rain threat has remained nearly steady from
          the previous assessment.
        - Emergency considerations should include a threat of
          flooding.
        - Be safe and remain ready to protect against flooding rain
          impacts.
        - If flood related watches and warnings are in effect, heed
          recommended actions.

    - Potential impacts: limited
        - localized rainfall flooding may prompt a few evacuations.
        - Rivers and tributaries may quickly rise with swifter
          currents. Small streams, creeks, canals, arroyos, and
          ditches may become swollen and overflow in spots.
        - Flood waters can enter a few structures, especially in
          usually vulnerable spots. A few places where rapid ponding
          of water occurs at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor
          drainage areas. Several storm drains and retention ponds
          become near-full and begin to overflow. Some brief Road and
          bridge closures.

* Tornado
    - latest local forecast:
        - situation is somewhat favorable for tornadoes

    - current threat to life and property: elevated
        - the tornado threat has remained nearly steady from the
          previous assessment.
        - Emergency considerations should include a reasonable threat
          for tornadoes.
        - Be safe and remain ready to protect against tornado
          impacts. Stay informed.
        - Listen for tornado watches and warnings. If a tornado
          approaches, quickly move to the safest place within your
          shelter.

    - Potential impacts: limited
        - the occurrence of isolated tornadoes can hinder the
          execution of emergency plans during tropical events.
        - A few places may experience tornado damage, along with
          power and communications disruptions.
        - Locations could realize roofs peeled off buildings,
          chimneys toppled, Mobile homes pushed off foundations or
          overturned, large Tree Tops and branches snapped off,
          shallow-rooted trees knocked over, moving vehicles blown
          off roads, and small boats pulled from moorings.

          immediate shorelines and in low-lying spots, or in areas
          farther inland near where higher surge waters move ashore.
          Marshes and estuaries will be fully flooded at high tide.
          Populated areas likely to flood include those threatened by
          flooding during strong northeasters or which have flooded
          during past tropical storms.
        - Sections of near-shore roads and parking lots become
          overspread with surge water. Driving conditions dangerous
          in places where surge water covers the Road.
        - Moderate beach erosion. Heavy surf also breaching dunes,
          mainly in usually vulnerable locations. Strong rip currents.
        - Minor to locally moderate damage to marinas, docks,
          boardwalks, and piers. A few small craft broken away from
          moorings.

* Flooding rain
    - latest local forecast: Flood Watch is in effect
        - peak rainfall amounts: additional 2-4 inches, with locally
          higher amounts

    - current threat to life and property: elevated
        - the flooding rain threat has remained nearly steady from
          the previous assessment.
        - Emergency considerations should include a threat of
          flooding.
        - Be safe and remain ready to protect against flooding rain
          impacts.
        - If flood related watches and warnings are in effect, heed
          recommended actions.

    - Potential impacts: limited
        - localized rainfall flooding may prompt a few evacuations.
        - Rivers and tributaries may quickly rise with swifter
          currents. Small streams, creeks, canals, arroyos, and
          ditches may become swollen and overflow in spots.
        - Flood waters can enter a few structures, especially in
          usually vulnerable spots. A few places where rapid ponding
          of water occurs at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor
          drainage areas. Several storm drains and retention ponds
          become near-full and begin to overflow. Some brief Road and
          bridge closures.

* Tornado
    - latest local forecast:
        - situation is somewhat favorable for tornadoes

    - current threat to life and property: elevated
        - the tornado threat has remained nearly steady from the
          previous assessment.
        - Emergency considerations should include a reasonable threat
          for tornadoes.
        - Be safe and remain ready to protect against tornado
          impacts. Stay informed.
        - Listen for tornado watches and warnings. If a tornado
          approaches, quickly move to the safest place within your
          shelter.

    - Potential impacts: limited
        - the occurrence of isolated tornadoes can hinder the
          execution of emergency plans during tropical events.
        - A few places may experience tornado damage, along with
          power and communications disruptions.
        - Locations could realize roofs peeled off buildings,
          chimneys toppled, Mobile homes pushed off foundations or
          overturned, large Tree Tops and branches snapped off,
          shallow-rooted trees knocked over, moving vehicles blown
          off roads, and small boats pulled from moorings.

... Tropical storm watch remains in effect...

* locations affected
    - Jacksonville Beach

* wind
    - latest local forecast: below tropical storm force wind
        - peak wind forecast: 15-25 mph with gusts to 35 mph

    - current threat to life and property: elevated
        - the wind threat has remained nearly steady from the
          previous assessment.
        - Remain braced against the reasonable threat for tropical
          storm force wind of 39 to 57 mph.
        - To be safe, efforts should fully focus on avoiding injury.
          Properties remain subject to limited wind impacts.
        - Now is the time to hide from the wind. Failure to
          adequately shelter may result in serious injury. Remain
          sheltered until the hazardous wind subsides.

    - Potential impacts: unfolding
        - potential impacts from the main wind event are unfolding.
        - The extent of realized impacts will depend on the actual
          strength, duration, and exposure of the wind as experienced
          at particular locations.

* Storm surge
    - latest local forecast: localized storm surge possible
        - peak storm surge inundation: the potential for up to 2 feet
          above ground somewhere within surge prone areas
        - window of concern: early Thursday afternoon until early
          Saturday afternoon

    - current threat to life and property: elevated
        - the storm surge threat has increased from the previous
          assessment.
        - Emergency plans should include a reasonable threat for peak
          storm surge flooding of greater than 1 foot above ground.
        - To be safe, prepare for the potential of limited storm
          surge flooding impacts. Efforts should now be brought to
          completion before conditions deteriorate.
        - Localized inundation is possible. Follow the instructions
          of local officials. Consider voluntary evacuation if
          recommended. Leave immediately if evacuation orders are
          issued.
