**bonnie downgraded to a tropical depression**

new information
---------------

* changes to watches and warnings:
    - all watches and warnings have been canceled

* current watches and warnings:
    - none

* storm information:
    - about 20 miles east of Charleston SC or about 90 miles
      east-northeast of Savannah GA
    - 32.7n 79.6w
    - storm intensity 35 mph
    - movement north or 355 degrees at 9 mph

Situation overview
------------------
Tropical Depression Bonnie has just made landfall near the Isle of Palms...
South Carolina. The storm is expected to move slowly north then northeastward
today and tonight. However... the track of this storm is quite uncertain at this
point.

It appears that the main impacts from TD Bonnie will be heavy rainfall
and the potential for flooding/flash flooding as the storm moves slowly
northward today. There has already been some significant flooding of some roads
and homes in the Ridgeland area of South Carolina. Additional flooding
will be possible through at least today. The exact location of flooding/flash
flooding will depend on where the heaviest rainbands setup. All areas of
southeast South Carolina and southeast Georgia should be alert to the
potential for flash flooding today.

There could still be some localized wind gusts to near tropical storm force
strength this morning within rainbands... especially near the coast and over
the Atlantic waters. Overall... winds should continue to slowly decrease
through the day.

The elevated risk for life threatening rip currents will continue across
area beach today. Some beach erosion can also occur along the Charleston
County coast at least through tonight.

Potential impacts
-----------------

* flooding rain:
additional impacts from flooding rain are still a concern across southeast
South Carolina and southeast Georgia. Remain well guarded against locally
hazardous flood waters having further impacts of limited potential.

* Other coastal hazards:
there remains an increased risk for life threatening rip currents at area
beaches. Some beach erosion can also occur mainly along the Charleston
County coast through the rest of today.

* Wind:
some brief... isolated wind gust near tropical storm force will
be possible today... mainly near the coast. Otherwise... little to no high wind
impacts are anticipated at this time across southeast South Carolina
and southeast Georgia.

Precautionary/preparedness actions
----------------------------------

* other preparedness information:

When inspecting damage, use flashlights rather than candles or flamed
lighting. Be aware of Sparks that can ignite leaking gas or other
flammables.

Do not go up on your roof until the rain and strong winds have
subsided. Ladders can be slippery in the rain and unexpected wind
gusts can blow you off of the roof. Do not risk bodily harm in an
attempt to reduce property damage.

When clearing out fallen trees, be careful with chain saws and axes.
Always wear protective gear and keep others at a safe distance. Use
these tools according to operating manuals and safety instruction.
Leaning trees and those which have fallen on roof tops can be
especially challenging. If you are not in good health or unsure about
what you are doing, have someone else with tree cutting experience do
the job. Never cut trees without a partner.

If using a generator, avoid Carbon monoxide poisoning by following
instructions by the manufacturer. Make sure that the generator is run
in a well ventilated space.

Problems with sewer backups can further contaminate standing flood
waters. Keep children away. Also, listen for boil water alerts
relative to communities whose tap water may have become non-potable.

* other preparedness information:

When inspecting damage, use flashlights rather than candles or flamed
lighting. Be aware of Sparks that can ignite leaking gas or other
flammables.

Do not go up on your roof until the rain and strong winds have
subsided. Ladders can be slippery in the rain and unexpected wind
gusts can blow you off of the roof. Do not risk bodily harm in an
attempt to reduce property damage.

When clearing out fallen trees, be careful with chain saws and axes.
Always wear protective gear and keep others at a safe distance. Use
these tools according to operating manuals and safety instruction.
Leaning trees and those which have fallen on roof tops can be
especially challenging. If you are not in good health or unsure about
what you are doing, have someone else with tree cutting experience do
the job. Never cut trees without a partner.

If using a generator, avoid Carbon monoxide poisoning by following
instructions by the manufacturer. Make sure that the generator is run
in a well ventilated space.

Problems with sewer backups can further contaminate standing flood
waters. Keep children away. Also, listen for boil water alerts
relative to communities whose tap water may have become non-potable.

This product covers southeast South Carolina and southeast Georgia

**bonnie downgraded to a tropical depression**

new information
---------------

* changes to watches and warnings:
    - all watches and warnings have been canceled

* current watches and warnings:
    - none

* storm information:
    - about 20 miles east of Charleston SC or about 90 miles
      east-northeast of Savannah GA
    - 32.7n 79.6w
    - storm intensity 35 mph
    - movement north or 355 degrees at 9 mph

Situation overview
------------------
Tropical Depression Bonnie has just made landfall near the Isle of Palms...
South Carolina. The storm is expected to move slowly north then northeastward
today and tonight. However... the track of this storm is quite uncertain at this
point.

It appears that the main impacts from TD Bonnie will be heavy rainfall
and the potential for flooding/flash flooding as the storm moves slowly
northward today. There has already been some significant flooding of some roads
and homes in the Ridgeland area of South Carolina. Additional flooding
will be possible through at least today. The exact location of flooding/flash
flooding will depend on where the heaviest rainbands setup. All areas of
southeast South Carolina and southeast Georgia should be alert to the
potential for flash flooding today.

There could still be some localized wind gusts to near tropical storm force
strength this morning within rainbands... especially near the coast and over
the Atlantic waters. Overall... winds should continue to slowly decrease
through the day.

The elevated risk for life threatening rip currents will continue across
area beach today. Some beach erosion can also occur along the Charleston
County coast at least through tonight.

Potential impacts
-----------------

* flooding rain:
additional impacts from flooding rain are still a concern across southeast
South Carolina and southeast Georgia. Remain well guarded against locally
hazardous flood waters having further impacts of limited potential.

* Other coastal hazards:
there remains an increased risk for life threatening rip currents at area
beaches. Some beach erosion can also occur mainly along the Charleston
County coast through the rest of today.

* Wind:
some brief... isolated wind gust near tropical storm force will
be possible today... mainly near the coast. Otherwise... little to no high wind
impacts are anticipated at this time across southeast South Carolina
and southeast Georgia.

614 am EDT sun may 29 2016

This product covers southeast South Carolina and southeast Georgia

**bonnie weakens slightly while it moves northward**

New information
---------------

* changes to watches and warnings:
    - the Tropical Storm Warning for inland
      Jasper... Beaufort... coastal Colleton and coastal Jasper has
      been cancelled

* current watches and warnings:
    - a Tropical Storm Warning remains in effect for inland
      Berkeley... Charleston and tidal Berkeley

* storm information:
    - about 50 miles southeast of Charleston SC
    - 32.1n 79.4w
    - storm intensity 40 mph
    - movement north or 360 degrees at 8 mph

Situation overview
------------------

Tropical Storm Bonnie located about 50 miles southeast of
Charleston is moving north at 8 mph. The storm will move north
nearing the South Carolina coast by this afternoon and then will begin
to move slowly northeast away from the area Monday.

The main impacts from this system are expected to remain mainly over
the northern coastal regions within the Tropical Storm Warning area.
Tropical storm force winds of up to 40 mph... especially within
rainbands... will be possible mainly along the coast through tonight.
These winds may bring down some tree branches or small limbs... produce
hazardous driving conditions over bridges... and cause some scattered
power outages.

Locally heavy rain will occur at times through at least tonight... even
outside of areas included in the Tropical Storm Warning. Additional
rainfall of 1 to 3 inches with higher amounts will push storm total
rainfall amounts up to 2 to 4 inches across southeast South Carolina...
with locally higher amounts near 8 inches possible. There will be a
risk for minor flooding... mainly in low lying and poorly drained areas
near the South Carolina coast close to the times of high tide.
Isolated... flash flooding is possible.

There is an elevated risk for life threatening rip currents at area
beaches today. Some beach erosion can also occur along the Charleston
County coast at least through tonight.

Potential impacts
-----------------

* flooding rain:
protect against locally hazardous rainfall flooding having possible
limited impacts across southeast South Carolina. Potential
impacts include:
    - localized rainfall flooding could prompt a few evacuations.
    - Rivers and tributaries could quickly rise with swifter
      currents. Small streams, creeks, canals, and ditches could
      become swollen and overflow in spots.
    - Flood waters can enter a few structures, especially in normally
      vulnerable spots. Rapid ponding of water could occur at
      underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor drainage areas. Several
      storm drains and retention ponds become near-full and begin to
      overflow. Some brief Road and bridge closures.

Elsewhere across southeast South Carolina and southeast Georgia,
little to no impact is anticipated.

* Wind:
protect against hazardous wind having possible limited impacts across
mainly Charleston and portions of Berkeley County. Potential impacts
in this area include:
    - damage to porches, awnings, carports, sheds, and unanchored
      Mobile homes. Unsecured lightweight objects blown about.
    - Many large tree limbs broken off. A few trees snapped or
      uprooted, but with greater numbers in places where trees are
      shallow rooted. Some fences and roadway signs blown over.
    - Some roads impassable due to debris, particularly within urban
      or heavily wooded locations. Hazardous driving conditions on
      bridges and other elevated roadways, especially for high
      profile vehicles.
    - Isolated to scattered power and communications outages.

Elsewhere across southeast South Carolina and southeast Georgia,
little to no impact is anticipated.

* Other coastal hazards:
there is an increased risk for life threatening rip currents at area
beaches. Some beach erosion can also occur along the Charleston County coast
at least today.

* Surge:
protect against locally hazardous surge having possible limited
impacts across Charleston County. Potential impacts in
this area include:
    - localized inundation of saltwater mainly along immediate
      shorelines and in low-lying spots farther inland near rivers
      and creeks.
    - Sections of near-shore roads and parking lots become overspread
      with surge water. Driving conditions hazardous in places where
      surge water covers the Road.
    - Minor to moderate beach erosion. Heavy surf possibly breaching
      dunes, mainly in normally vulnerable locations. Strong rip
      currents.
    - Minor to locally moderate damage to marinas, docks, boardwalks,
      and piers. A few small craft broken away from moorings.

Elsewhere across southeast South Carolina and southeast Georgia,
little to no impact is anticipated.

* Tornadoes:
protect against a tornado event having possible limited impacts
across coastal sections of the Charleston Metro area. Potential impacts
include:
    - isolated tornadoes can hinder the execution of emergency plans.
    - Isolated locations could experience tornado damage, along with
      power and communications disruptions.
    - In isolated locations, tornadoes could damage trees, vehicles,
      boats and buildings, especially Mobile homes and and other
      poorly constructed structures.

Elsewhere across southeast South Carolina and southeast Georgia,
little to no impact is anticipated.

    - Flood waters can enter a few structures, especially in normally
      vulnerable spots. Rapid ponding of water could occur at
      underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor drainage areas. Several
      storm drains and retention ponds become near-full and begin to
      overflow. Some brief Road and bridge closures.

Elsewhere across southeast South Carolina and southeast Georgia,
little to no impact is anticipated.

* Wind:
protect against hazardous wind having possible limited impacts across
mainly Charleston and portions of Berkeley County. Potential impacts
in this area include:
    - damage to porches, awnings, carports, sheds, and unanchored
      Mobile homes. Unsecured lightweight objects blown about.
    - Many large tree limbs broken off. A few trees snapped or
      uprooted, but with greater numbers in places where trees are
      shallow rooted. Some fences and roadway signs blown over.
    - Some roads impassable due to debris, particularly within urban
      or heavily wooded locations. Hazardous driving conditions on
      bridges and other elevated roadways, especially for high
      profile vehicles.
    - Isolated to scattered power and communications outages.

Elsewhere across southeast South Carolina and southeast Georgia,
little to no impact is anticipated.

* Other coastal hazards:
there is an increased risk for life threatening rip currents at area
beaches. Some beach erosion can also occur along the Charleston County coast
at least today.

* Surge:
protect against locally hazardous surge having possible limited
impacts across Charleston County. Potential impacts in
this area include:
    - localized inundation of saltwater mainly along immediate
      shorelines and in low-lying spots farther inland near rivers
      and creeks.
    - Sections of near-shore roads and parking lots become overspread
      with surge water. Driving conditions hazardous in places where
      surge water covers the Road.
    - Minor to moderate beach erosion. Heavy surf possibly breaching
      dunes, mainly in normally vulnerable locations. Strong rip
      currents.
    - Minor to locally moderate damage to marinas, docks, boardwalks,
      and piers. A few small craft broken away from moorings.

Elsewhere across southeast South Carolina and southeast Georgia,
little to no impact is anticipated.

* Tornadoes:
protect against a tornado event having possible limited impacts
across coastal sections of the Charleston Metro area. Potential impacts
include:
    - isolated tornadoes can hinder the execution of emergency plans.
    - Isolated locations could experience tornado damage, along with
      power and communications disruptions.
    - In isolated locations, tornadoes could damage trees, vehicles,
      boats and buildings, especially Mobile homes and and other
      poorly constructed structures.

Elsewhere across southeast South Carolina and southeast Georgia,
little to no impact is anticipated.
