Waves Crash on Long Island Beach as Hurricane Fiona Heads North

The National Hurricane Center (NHC) warned of dangerous storm surges and life-threatening rip currents on the eastern US coastline as Hurricane Fiona moved north over the Atlantic on September 23.

Fiona hit Bermuda as a Category 3 hurricane before restrengthening to a Category 4, the NHC said on Friday.

Coastal communities along the eastern seaboard were warned of “life-threatening surf and rip current conditions” over “the next couple of days.”
