Here's What Hermine Looks Like at Delaware Beaches

Sunday morning is pleasant so far besides wind and rough surf -- but the calm is deceptive, as Delaware's shore points brace for the brunt of the flooding Hermine is expected to cause. NBC10's George Spencer is in Rehoboth with the latest conditions there. (Published Sunday, Sept. 4, 2016)

Some people are braving high wind and heavy rain to tweet and Instagram from Delaware beaches and coastlines Saturday.

Here's a look from the ground at what Hermine as it arrives in Delaware. New Jersey and Pennsylvania, the storm is on its way.

On Friday, people in Washington D.C. and southern states shared their vantage points of Hermine as the massive storm swept up the coast.

Tropical Storm Hermine continues to crawl up the East Coast, as its wind and precipitation that eventually arrive could cause record-level flooding for the coast south of Atlantic City.

Its northern front of rain began falling in Cape May by late Saturday morning.

Four to five inches of rain could fall on Cape May by Monday afternoon, according to the latest forecasts from the National Weather Service.

"Major" flooding is now part of the NWS forecast.

Dangerous Tropical Storm conditions will be present and those who are still considering making a trek down the shore should re-consider, NBC10 First Alert Weather chief meteorologist Glenn "Hurricane" Schwartz warned Saturday morning. In fact, Hermine could become a hurricane again once it hits open ocean late Sunday into Monday.

Winds could reach 60 miles per hour along the Jersey shore, NBC10 is forecasting.

"This is a potentially life-threatening situation," Hurricane said. "There should be a voluntary evacuation by today, Saturday, from coastal areas."

Hurricane said Hermine's path is "very unusual."
