NEW YORK - Gusty winds and possible coastal flooding remain the top concerns as Hermine churns over the Atlantic Ocean.

News 12 meteorologists say the projected track of Hermine shifted a bit east, but the potential remains for some areas to see coastal flooding and strong, gusty winds into Monday and Tuesday.

New York City was never expected to get a direct hit from the storm, but Hermine is still expected to stall for several days south of Long Island, and as it churns its bands could lash the area with coastal flooding.

The storm is nudging a bit northwest toward the tri-state area before heading out to sea. Exactly how far west the storm comes will directly impact Hermine's effects in the area.

Hermine made landfall as a hurricane in Florida last week. It brought flooding and power outages to parts of Florida and Georgia before being downgraded to a tropical storm and churning up along the East Coast. The storm is blamed for two deaths, in Florida and North Carolina.
