CHARLESTON, S.C. (WHNT)– The National Hurricane Center downgraded Tropical Storm Bonnie to a tropical depression shortly before the storm made landfall along the South Carolina coast Sunday morning.

As of Sunday afternoon, the storm had max winds of 30 miles per hour and was located near Charleston, South Carolina.

Tropical Depression Bonnie was nearly stationary, but is forecast to move northeast along the coast early this week. Heavy rain continues to be the main concern for communities in South Carolina and North Carolina.

RAINFALL:  Bonnie is expected to produce additional rainfall
accumulations of 2 to 3 inches with isolated maximum amounts of 6
inches across east-central Georgia, central and eastern South
Carolina, and eastern North Carolina. Farther north, the moisture
from Bonnie will produce rainfall amounts of 1 to 2 inches with
isolated maximum amounts of 4 inches across eastern portions of the
mid-Atlantic region into southern New England through Wednesday.

Some rainfall totals so far include 8.20 inches near Ridgeland,
South Carolina, and 7.27 inches near Oliver, Georgia.

SURF: Bonnie is expected to produce dangerous surf and rip current
conditions along portions of the southeastern United States coast
through the weekend. Please consult products from your local
weather office.
