SITUATION OVERVIEW
------------------

TROPICAL STORM HERMINE CONTINUES TO STRENGTHEN TONIGHT AND IS EXPECTED
TO STRENGTHEN TO A CATEGORY 1 HURRICANE PRIOR TO LANDFALL. HURRICANE WATCHES
HAVE BEEN UPGRADED TO HURRICANE WARNINGS ACROSS ALL COASTAL AREAS IN THE
BIG BEND, AS WELL AS INLAND COUNTIES ALONG I-10 FROM LIBERTY COUNTY TO
MADISON COUNTY. THE MAIN IMPACTS ARE EXPECTED TO BEGIN THIS EVENING/TONIGHT,
INCLUDING WIND DAMAGE - ESPECIALLY TREE DAMAGE RESULTING IN POWER OUTAGES,
FLOODING RAINS AND ISOLATED TORNADOES. IN ADDITION, STORM SURGE INUNDATION
ALONG COASTAL AREAS IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN EARLIER TODAY. EVACUATIONS ARE
CURRENTLY IN EFFECT FOR SOME COASTAL AREAS. PLEASE FOLLOW GUIDANCE FROM
LOCAL AUTHORITIES.

POTENTIAL IMPACTS
-----------------

* SURGE:
PROTECT AGAINST LIFE-THREATENING SURGE HAVING POSSIBLE SIGNIFICANT
IMPACTS ACROSS THE BIG BEND AREA. POTENTIAL IMPACTS IN
THIS AREA INCLUDE:
    - AREAS OF INUNDATION FROM STORM SURGE FLOODING, COMPOUNDED BY
      HIGHER WAVES. NON-ELEVATED HOMES AND BUSINESSES ALONG THE COAST
      WILL BE SUBJECT TO FLOODING PRIMARILY ON THE GROUND FLOOR.
    - SECTIONS OF COASTAL HIGHWAYS AND ACCESS ROADS WILL BE FLOODED
      WITH PORTIONS WASHED OUT, ISOLATING AFFECTED COASTAL
      COMMUNITIES.
    - MODERATE BEACH EROSION WITH DAMAGE TO THE DUNE LINE.
    - MODERATE DAMAGE TO MARINAS, DOCKS, AND PIERS. SMALL CRAFT NOT
      SECURED PRIOR TO THE STORM WILL BREAK AWAY FROM MOORINGS.

ALSO, PROTECT AGAINST LOCALLY HAZARDOUS SURGE HAVING POSSIBLE LIMITED
IMPACTS ACROSS THE FLORIDA PANHANDLE.

* WIND:
PROTECT AGAINST DANGEROUS WIND HAVING POSSIBLE SIGNIFICANT IMPACTS
ACROSS THE FLORIDA PANHANDLE AND BIG BEND, AND SOUTHWEST GEORGIA. POTENTIAL
IMPACTS IN THIS AREA INCLUDE:
    - MODERATE DAMAGE TO FRAME BUILT HOMES, PRIMARILY DUE TO THE LOSS
      OF ROOFING AND SIDING MATERIALS, ALONG WITH DAMAGE TO PORCHES,
      AWNINGS, CARPORTS, AND SHEDS. SOME WINDOWS AND GARAGE DOORS MAY
      FAIL. MOBILE HOMES DAMAGED, SOME SIGNIFICANTLY IF UNANCHORED.
      UNSECURED LIGHTWEIGHT OBJECTS BECOME PROJECTILES.
    - SEVERAL LARGE TREES UPROOTED; SOME SNAPPED. SOME LARGE ROADWAY
      SIGNS BLOWN OVER.
    - A FEW PRIMARY AND SOME SECONDARY ROADS ARE IMPASSIBLE DUE TO
      DEBRIS.
    - SCATTERED POWER AND COMMUNICATION OUTAGES; SOME LOCALLY
      SIGNIFICANT, LASTING FOR DAYS.

ALSO, PROTECT AGAINST HAZARDOUS WIND HAVING POSSIBLE LIMITED IMPACTS
ACROSS SOUTHEAST ALABAMA.

* FLOODING RAIN:
PROTECT AGAINST LIFE-THREATENING RAINFALL FLOODING HAVING POSSIBLE
EXTENSIVE IMPACTS ACROSS NORTH FLORIDA AND SOUTH GEORGIA. POTENTIAL
IMPACTS INCLUDE:
    - MAJOR FLOODING FROM RAINFALL WILL PROMPT EVACUATIONS IN FLOOD
      PRONE AREAS. THOSE NOT HEEDING EVACUATIONS IN THESE LOCATIONS
      FACE SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH.
    - RIVERS AND ASSOCIATED TRIBUTARY CREEKS AND STREAM WILL RISE AND
      OVERFLOW INTO THE FLOOD PLAIN. RUNOFF WILL PUT STRESS ON AREA
      HOLDING PONDS AND DRAINAGE DITCHES, INCREASING THE LIKELIHOOD
      OF WIDESPREAD URBAN FLOODING.
    - FLOOD WATERS WILL IMPACT STRUCTURES IN LOW LYING AREAS, AS WELL
      AS THOSE IN THE FLOOD PLAIN, POSSIBLY ENTERING BUILDINGS. URBAN
      FLOODING WILL RESULT IN SEVERAL ROAD CLOSURES AND SOME
      WASHOUTS. A FEW OVERPASSES MAY BE WEAKENED BY FAST MOVING FLOOD
      WATERS. DRIVING CONDITIONS ARE VERY DANGEROUS.

* TORNADOES:
PROTECT AGAINST A TORNADO EVENT HAVING POSSIBLE LIMITED IMPACTS
ACROSS NORTH FLORIDA AND SOUTH GEORGIA. POTENTIAL IMPACTS INCLUDE:
    - ISOLATED TORNADOES ARE EXPECTED, RESULTING IN A NOTABLE IMPACT
      TO AFFECTED COMMUNITIES.
    - ISOLATED AREAS AFFECTED BY TORNADOES WILL EXPERIENCE MINOR
      DAMAGE, INCLUDING SOME DAMAGE TO STRUCTURES AND SPORADIC POWER
      AND COMMUNICATION OUTAGES.
    - A FEW STRUCTURES WILL BE DAMAGED BY TORNADOES, MAINLY WITH LOSS
      OF SHINGLES OR SIDING. SOME MOBILE HOMES WILL BE SIGNIFICANTLY
      DAMAGED, ESPECIALLY THOSE UNANCHORED. LARGE TREES WILL BE
      SNAPPED OR UPROOTED.

ELSEWHERE ACROSS EASTERN FLORIDA PANHANDLE...FLORIDA BIG
BEND...SOUTHEASTERN ALABAMA AND SOUTHWESTERN GEORGIA, LITTLE TO NO
IMPACT IS ANTICIPATED.

* OTHER COASTAL HAZARDS:
THERE IS A HIGH RISK FOR RIP CURRENTS ALONG ALL AREA BEACHES.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS
----------------------------------

* EVACUATIONS:
FOR THOSE UNDER EVACUATION ORDERS, LEAVE AS SOON AS PRACTICAL WITH A
DESTINATION IN MIND. GAS UP YOUR VEHICLE WELL AHEAD OF TIME. BE SURE
THAT YOU TAKE ALL ESSENTIAL MATERIALS FROM YOUR EMERGENCY SUPPLIES KIT.
LET OTHERS KNOW WHERE YOU ARE GOING AND WHEN YOU INTEND TO ARRIVE.

IF YOU ARE EXCEPTIONALLY VULNERABLE TO WIND OR
WATER HAZARDS FROM TROPICAL SYSTEMS, CONSIDER VOLUNTARY EVACUATION,
ESPECIALLY IF BEING OFFICIALLY RECOMMENDED. RELOCATE TO A
PREDETERMINED SHELTER OR SAFE DESTINATION.

IF EVACUATING AWAY FROM THE AREA OR RELOCATING
TO A NEARBY SHELTER, LEAVE EARLY BEFORE WEATHER CONDITIONS BECOME
HAZARDOUS.

LIFE AND PROPERTY IN ACCORDANCE WITH YOUR EMERGENCY PLAN.

OUTSIDE PREPARATIONS SHOULD BE WRAPPED UP AS SOON AS POSSIBLE BEFORE
WEATHER CONDITIONS COMPLETELY DETERIORATE. ANY REMAINING EVACUATIONS
AND RELOCATIONS SHOULD BE EXPEDITED BEFORE THE ONSET OF TROPICAL
STORM FORCE WIND.

KEEP CELL PHONES WELL CHARGED AND HANDY. ALSO, CELL PHONE CHARGERS
FOR AUTOMOBILES CAN BE HELPFUL AFTER THE STORM. LOCATE YOUR CHARGERS
AND KEEP THEM WITH YOUR CELL PHONE.

IF YOU ARE A VISITOR AND STILL IN THE AREA, LISTEN FOR THE NAME OF
THE CITY OR TOWN IN WHICH YOU ARE STAYING WITHIN LOCAL NEWS UPDATES.

      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.

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.
