* current watches and warnings:
    - a Tropical Storm Warning remains in effect for inland
      Horry... coastal Horry... inland Georgetown and coastal Georgetown

* storm information:
    - about 180 miles south-southwest of Wilmington NC or about 110

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

Tropical Storm Bonnie is located about 110 miles south of Myrtle
Beach and continues to move slowly northward. Maximum winds have
dropped to 40 mph. This system will track along or very close to the
immediate coast of South Carolina today. It will then turn northeast
and continue slowly along the North Carolina coast through Wednesday.

Rainfall over the next few days should average 2 to 4 inches. A few
locations may receive as much as 5 inches.

Rough surf and a high risk of rip currents can be expected along the
entire coast of South Carolina and southeastern North Carolina over
the next few days.

A small tornado risk exists today. Isolated tornadoes are possible
along the immediate coast.

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

* flooding rain:
protect against locally hazardous rainfall flooding having possible
limited impacts across southeast North Carolina and northeast South
Carolina. Potential impacts include:
    - localized flooding from rainfall may occur, especially in
      low-lying and poor drainage areas. Some rivers and creeks may
      rise as a result of the rain. Small streams, creeks, and
      ditches may overflow in some locations.
    - Several storm drains and retention ponds may become full and
      begin to overflow. Some brief Road closures are possible.

* Other coastal hazards:
strong rip currents are expected along area beaches through the
Holiday weekend.

* Wind:
protect against hazardous wind having possible limited impacts across
southeast North Carolina and northeast South Carolina. Potential
impacts include:
    - unsecured lightweight objects may be blown about.
    - Some large limbs may break from trees. A few shallow rooted or
      weak trees may snap or be knocked down.
    - Isolated power and communications outages are possible.

* Tornadoes:
protect against a tornado event having possible limited impacts
across the immediate coast of northeast South Carolina and southeast
North Carolina. Potential impacts include:
    - the occurrence of isolated tornadoes can hinder the execution
      of emergency plans during tropical events.
    - Tornadoes can cause damage to trees, vehicles, boats, and
      buildings. Unsecured Mobile homes and poorly constructed
      structures are particularly vulnerable.

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