GWC Weather Footage–August 27, 2014–Hurricane Cristobal Stirs Up Surf Along Jersey Shore

Here is weather footage of heavy surf getting stirred up along the Jersey Shore courtesy of Hurricane Cristobal on the final Wednesday of August 2014. Cristobal, the third named storm and hurricane of the 2014 Atlantic Hurricane Season, has only been a Category One Hurricane to date with peak winds of 80 mph, but it churned up the surf with wave heights ranging between 3 to 6 feet above normal. The storm stayed away from the U.S. East Coast while staying west of Bermuda. It did dump a good deal of rain on the Turks and Caicos islands and the Southeastern Bahamas earlier in the week.
