Hurricane Hermine made landfall in Florida overnight, before it was downgraded to tropical storm status.

Florida Gov. Rick Scott said Hermine may be responsible for claiming the life of a man who died after he was hit by a tree. Forecasters say the storm most likely will cause flooding in the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic states.

Some weather models predict it could stall off the New Jersey coast for days and dump more than 20 inches of rain.

Here & Now‘s Robin Young speaks with Carl Parker of the Weather Channel about what to expect from Hermine and other storms.
