(Worthy News) - Hurricane Hermine made landfall on Florida's northwest coast early Friday, flooding streets, toppling trees and knocking down power lines.
The Category 1 hurricane roared ashore from the Gulf of Mexico near St. Marks, which is south of Tallahassee, with sustained winds of 80 mph at around 1:30 a.m. ET. It was moving north-northeast at 14 miles per hour.
The National Weather Service said Hermine was expected to produce rainfall from 5 to 10 inches over much of northwest Florida and southern Georgia through Friday — with possible localized deluges of 20 inches. [ Source ]
