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.

* Other preparedness information:
now is the time to bring to completion all preparations to protect
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.
Be sure you know the name of the County or Parish in which it
resides. Pay attention for instructions from local authorities.

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

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.

* Other preparedness information:
now is the time to bring to completion all preparations to protect
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.
Be sure you know the name of the County or Parish in which it
resides. Pay attention for instructions from local authorities.

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

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

Tropical Storm Hermine continues to strengthen across the southern
Gulf of Mexico. Hermine is expected to continue moving northward
toward the Florida Gulf Coast with tropical storm conditions
approaching the coast by Thursday afternoon. There is some potential
for the system to strengthen to a hurricane before making landfall
early Friday morning. Tropical storm warnings are now in effect from
Destin eastward through the Suwannee River. With the storm possibly
strengthening to a hurricane, a Hurricane Watch is now in effect for
our entire coastline and a few inland counties in the Florida Big
Bend.

At this time based on the latest forecasts, areas in North Florida
should prepare for the potential of near hurricane force winds late
Thursday evening and early Friday morning. There is also a
significant threat for flooding with some locations receiving as
much as 15 to 20 inches of rain through Friday afternoon. This is
capable of producing life threatening flash flooding across the
area.

Along the coast, dangerous storm surge flooding is expected with storm
surge values of 4 to 6 feet above ground in Apalachee Bay.

Potential impacts

* evacuations:
emergency management officials have issued a mandatory evacuation for
the following areas...

In Wakulla County... locations in zone a.

In Dixie County... all coastal areas effective at 8 am Thursday.

In Franklin County... for residents of St George Island.

For those under evacuation orders, leave as soon as practical

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

Tropical Storm Hermine continues to strengthen across the southern
Gulf of Mexico. Hermine is expected to continue moving northward
toward the Florida Gulf Coast with tropical storm conditions
approaching the coast by Thursday afternoon. There is some potential
for the system to strengthen to a hurricane before making landfall
early Friday morning. Tropical storm warnings are now in effect from
Destin eastward through the Suwannee River. With the storm possibly
strengthening to a hurricane, a Hurricane Watch is now in effect for
our entire coastline and a few inland counties in the Florida Big
Bend.

At this time based on the latest forecasts, areas in North Florida
should prepare for the potential of near hurricane force winds late
Thursday evening and early Friday morning. There is also a
significant threat for flooding with some locations receiving as
much as 15 to 20 inches of rain through Friday afternoon. This is
capable of producing life threatening flash flooding across the
area.

Along the coast, dangerous storm surge flooding is expected with storm
surge values of 4 to 6 feet above ground in Apalachee Bay.

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

* wind:
protect against dangerous wind having possible significant impacts
across the Florida Panhandle and Florida Big Bend. 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.

* 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.
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.

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

* evacuations:
emergency management officials have issued a mandatory evacuation for
the following areas...

In Wakulla County... locations in zone a.

In Dixie County... all coastal areas effective at 8 am Thursday.

In Franklin County... for residents of St George Island.

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.

Now is the time to bring to completion all preparations to protect
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.

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

        - peak rainfall amounts: additional 4-8 inches, with locally
          higher amounts

    - current threat to life and property: high
        - the flooding rain threat has remained nearly steady from
          the previous assessment.
        - Emergency plans should include a reasonable threat for
          major flooding where peak rainfall totals well exceed
          amounts conducive for flash flooding and rapid inundation.
          Rescues and emergency evacuations are likely.
        - To be safe, aggressively prepare for the potential of
          extensive flooding rain impacts.
        - Life threatening flooding is possible. Failure to take
          action may result in serious injury or significant loss of
          life. If flood related watches and warnings are issued,
          heed recommended actions. Poor decisions may result in
          being cut off or needlessly risk lives. If vulnerable,
          relocate to safe shelter on higher ground before flood
          waters arrive.

    - Potential impacts: extensive
        - 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.

* 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.
        - When implementing emergency plans, include a reasonable
          threat for isolated tornadoes.
        - To be safe, prepare for the potential of limited tornado
          impacts.
        - Listen for tornado watches and warnings. Be ready to
          shelter quickly if a tornado approaches.

    - Potential impacts: limited
        - 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.

    - 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.

* Flooding rain
    - latest local forecast: Flash Flood Watch is in effect
        - peak rainfall amounts: additional 6-10 inches, with locally
          higher amounts

    - current threat to life and property: high
        - 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: extensive
        - 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.

* 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
        - 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.
