STORM SUMMARY 14 FOR TROPICAL DEPRESSION HERMINE
NATIONAL CENTERS FOR ENVIRONMENTAL PREDICTION
HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL PREDICTION CENTER...NWS...CAMP SPRINGS MD
600 PM CDT SUN SEP 20 1998

AT 6 PM CDT...THE REMNANTS OF HERMINE WERE LOCATED IN SOUTH CENTRAL
MISSISSIPPI, VERY NEAR HATTIESBURG.  THE SYSTEM CONTINUES TO WEAKEN
AS IT MOVES SLOWLY NORTHEASTWARD.

HERMINE CAME IN ACROSS SOUTHEASTERN LOUISIANA SATURDAY NIGHT AS A
WEAK TROPICAL STORM.  RAIN BANDS WERE NOT VERY IMPRESSIVE AS THEY
MOVED INLAND OVERNIGHT AND INTO THE EARLY MORNING HOURS,
ALTHOUGH A BRIEF PERIOD OF HEAVY RAIN DID PRODUCE SOME MINOR
FLOODING THIS MORNING IN WALTHALL COUNTY, MISSISSIPPI, WHICH IS ON THE
MISSISSIPPI/LOUISIANA BORDER.  SINCE THE MORNING HOURS, THE RAINFALL
PATTERN ASSOCIATED WITH HERMINE HAS CONTINUED TO DIMINISH, AND AS OF
LATE AFTERNOON, THERE WERE NO LONGER ANY FLASH FLOOD WATCHES OR
WARNINGS IN EFFECT THAT COULD BE TIED IN TO HERMINE.  SOME LOCALLY
HEAVY RAINFALL IS POSSIBLE THROUGHOUT PORTIONS OF ALABAMA AND
WESTERN GEORGIA SUNDAY NIGHT INTO EARLY MONDAY AS SOME OF THE 
REMAINING TROPICAL MOISTURE LIFTS NORTHEASTWARD WITH THE
WEAKENING REMNANTS OF HERMINE, BUT ANY FLOODING POTENTIAL IS VERY
LOW.  HERMINE DID ALSO APPARENTLY SPAWN A TORNADO 10 MILES SOUTH OF
POPLARVILLE, MISSISSIPPI, EARLY SUNDAY MORNING, WHICH DESTROYED 2
MOBILE HOMES AND DAMAGED OR DESTROYED 7 CARS.  HOWEVER, WITH
HERMINE CONTINUING TO WEAKEN, EVEN THE SEVERE WEATHER THREAT HAS
GREATLY DIMINISHED.

SINCE THERE ARE NO LONGER ANY SIGNIFICANT HEAVY RAINFALL OR SEVERE
WEATHER THREATS ASSOCIATED WITH THE REMNANTS OF HERMINE, THIS WILL
BE THE LAST ADVISORY ISSUED ON THIS STORM.
