The Margin: Hermine stalls at sea, but threat of storm surge remains

The East Coast appeared to buy itself a holiday weekend reprieve from the storm dubbed Hermine, but officials warned it the danger is not over yet.

Hermine hit Florida as a hurricane on Friday, and on Sunday drifted further east than expected and was downgraded to a “post-tropical cyclone.” But meteorologists said the stalled storm could pick up steam and grow to hurricane force again late Sunday before decreasing to a tropical storm by Tuesday.

As of Sunday afternoon, Hermine was at sea about 300 miles east of Maryland and south of Long Island, with 70-mph winds generating waves that have pounded the Eastern Seaboard.
