Dozens of beaches were closed over Labor Day weekend, as post-tropical storm Hermine made its way slowly up the northeast Atlantic coast. Life-threatening riptides and rough surf kept swimmers out of the water in coastal towns across New York and New England.

On Tuesday, Hermine continued to weaken off the coast, but the storm is still expected to cause damage. Parts of Long Island are bracing for possible storm surge and moderate flooding.
