While Hermine isn’t going to hit our part of the gulf coast head-on, we will still feel some of the storm’s effects at area beaches. Orange Beach saw five to six-foot waves around noon today, and conditions are expected to worsen. Life-threatening rip currents are likely. Red flags are up all along the gulf coast; swimmers are advised to stay out of the water.
