Entire Monmouth County Coast Under Tropical Storm Warning

Tropical Storm Hermine is making its way to New Jersey and as a result, the entire Monmouth County coastline is under a tropical storm warning.

A tropical storm warning means that conditions of the storm are occurring or imminent.

The National Weather Service's latest briefing states that coastal flooding and beach erosions will be the most severe hazards the storm will bring with it.

"There still remains some uncertainty with the track of Hermine Sunday through Monday, as the storm is expected to slow and meander which will, in turn, prolong the coastal and marine impacts," the briefing states.

"Areas of minor flooding beginning with the Saturday evening high tide, then minor to moderate flooding Sunday morning," according to the National Weather Service states. "Widespread moderate to major flooding is now expected with the Sunday evening high tide and the Monday morning high tide, especially from Atlantic City south to coastal Delaware, when the storm is expected to make its closest approach to the area."

Coastal flooding may continue into Tuesday and street flooding will likely occur.

The strongest winds and heaviest rain will occur Sunday into Monday, with just over one inch of precipitation expected to fall in our area through Tuesday.

The borough of Sea Bright is asking residents to keep vehicles off of side streets and secure all yard property due to high winds and flooding.
