Tropical Storm BONNIE Downgraded to a Tropical Depression


   Tropical Storm Bonnie has been downgraded to a tropical depression even before it made landfall just east of Charleston, South Carolina on the Isle of Palms around 8:30AM Sunday. It is moving very slowly, 1-2 MPH up the South Carolina Coast, with winds up to 30 MPH reaching as far north to Virginia. By 8AM on Thursday, the eye of the storm should be heading off shore to the North East. New York City. Presently it is converging on Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. It is not expected to strengthen in the next 48 hours. At the present time, all tropical storm warnings have been discontinued. The storm is bringing heavy rain with gusty winds, elevated surf and dangerous rip currents with an associated storm surge with minor coastal flooding. Another 4-6 inches of rain is expected across east-central Georgia, central and eastern South Carolina and eastern North Carolina. Even with the storm dissipation imminent, there should be heavy raid that will spread well north of Bonnie's main circulation gong into the Mid-Atlantac and Northeast.
