REHOBOTH BEACH, DEL. (WUSA9) - The threat of Hermine seemed to be dwindling, and Monday the only real threats are strong winds, rip tides and the possibility of flooding.
Swimming was not allowed Sunday and it is not clear if people will be allowed in the water Monday. The waves are big even early in the morning and most beachgoers said they are not going to risk it.
Low-lying areas like neighborhoods are still under a flood watch until late Monday morning, although it’s likely only minor flooding.
The weather will only get better which is good news for businesses on the boardwalk who rely on tourism to survive.
Despite the colder temperatures and strong winds, dozens of people came out to walk the boardwalk and then the beach before sunrise.
