Hermine hits Florida

Hermine

Damage to a road along Florida panhandle coast from Hurricane Hermine, 02 Sept 2016 (CNN)

The first hurricane to hit Florida in 11 years, pounded the state’s panhandle region early this morning.

Hermine was packing winds up to 130 km/h when it came ashore before quickly being downgraded to a tropical storm.

Hermine knocked out power to hundreds of thousands and torrential downpours brought flooding to low-lying areas.

The storm is expected to move north up the Atlantic coast and could even impact Nova Scotia and New Brunswick early next week.
