Map of Hurricane Hermine Projected Path?

Hurricane Hermine struck the Mexican coast about 40 miles south of the U.S. border Monday night.
Hurricane Hermine is the eighth named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season and is off Mexico’s east coast with maximum sustained winds of about 65 miles (100 kilometers) per hour.
Is it coming to the US? Where can I see a map of Hurricane Hermine's projected path?
How dangerous is Hurricane Hermine when compared to other hurricanes like Earl?

The National Hurricane Center announced earlier that Hermine was gaining strength as it neared land, with its top sustained winds growing to 65 mph (100 km/h) before hitting shore.
Hurricane Hermine is heading for the area around Brownsville, Texas and Matamoros, Mexico, where the border meets the Gulf of Mexico. People on both sides of the border are preparing for a possible meter-high surge of water, heavy winds and torrential rain.

The Mexican authorities urged people living in low-lying coastal areas to move to shelters while officials in Texas distributed sandbags and warned of flash floods.

Hurricane Hermine, whose force winds reach 105 miles from its eye, may bring four to eight inches of rain to northeastern Mexico and southern Texas, with isolated areas getting as much as 12 inches.

The NHC has issued a hurricane watch for the coast of Texas from the mouth of the Rio Grande River to Baffin Bay. A hurricane watch means that hurricane conditions are possible within the watch area, in this case, within 24 hours.

Hermine is now marching northward through Texas, Oklahoma residents could begin to feel effects as soon as Wednesday with the possibility of flash floods increasing across the state.
Residents in flood prone areas are urged to take precautions and make an emergency kit for the possibility of last minute evacuations.
Hermine is weakening as it moves further inland. The biggest threat from Hermine will be flooding, and the risk of tornadoes.

What's left of Hermine will continue to bring the threat for heavy rain and possibly tornadoes through the Central Plains and up through the Midwest. Parts of Oklahoma and Arkansas have gotten over a foot of rain, and it's still coming down.
And now it's the time of Igor, which is still pretty far away but is rapidly approaching.
