Re: Implications of Tropical Storm Hermine
Issued by: Det. Sgt. Jeremiah P. Marron Jr.
With the approach of Tropical Storm Hermine the potential exists for dangerous
rip currents and above average high tides along the Darien coastline over the
next few days. Swimmers are urged to exercise caution if they are in or near
the water and to adhere to any warnings posted at the local beaches.
In addition to the rip
currents the forecast also warns of the potential for minor flooding of coastal
areas during the high tide cycle occurring around 2:00 AM early Monday morning.
The town is forecasted
to experience sustained winds of 20-25 mph with the potential for gust of 35-40
mph starting Sunday afternoon and
continuing into Monday. Residents are encouraged to secure items that may be
prone to blowing around and or wind damage.
