Hurricane HerminePosition: 29.7N 84.3W [10PM CDT 0300 UTC].
Movement: North-Northeast [030°] near 14 mph [22 kph].
Maximum sustained winds: 80 mph [130 kph].

This is the first hurricane to make landfall in Florida since Dennis and Wilma hit us in 2005. It made the crucial turn for me and went far enough East so high surf and some coastal flooding are the local effects.

A Hurricane Warning is in effect for Suwannee River to Mexico Beach.

A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for Englewood to Suwannee River, West of Mexico Beach to the Walton/Bay County line, and Flagler/Volusia County line to Duck, North Carolina including the Pamlico and Albemarle Sounds.
