Hurricane Dorian brings coastal flooding, beach erosion to LI
A weakened Hurricane Dorian is bringing rough surf and flooding to parts of Long Island this weekend.
News 12 meteorologists say the center of the storm will stay at least 300 miles southeast of Long Island, so it's certainly not a direct hit. The storm's biggest impacts were felt at local beaches Friday, and advisories for coastal flooding and high surf  for parts of the Island will stay in effect Saturday.
Dangerous surf is expected with 8- to 10-foot waves at the beaches, with coastal flooding and beach erosion.
Tides are 2 to 4 feet above normal, potentially bringing flooding to coastal areas prone to it, especially around times of high tide.
Saturday starts off with lingering clouds, followed by clearing skies. Winds will gradually diminish, but the risk for beach erosion and coastal flooding continues, especially around times of high tide.
Sunday will be a mix of sun and clouds. High temps for the day will be in the mid-70s.
