Hermine is coming to New Jersey, and it won't be a pleasant visit.

Forecasters expect tropical-storm winds, record-breaking surges and flooding along the coast, and potential power outages throughout the state. In a worst-case scenario, there could be evacuations, blocked roads and delayed emergency vehicles.

Preparing for the worst, Gov. Chris Christie on Saturday declared a state of emergency for Atlantic, Cape May and Ocean counties, which are expected to get the brunt of Hermine.
