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

Tropical Depression Two is forecast to briefly strengthen into a weak
tropical storm early Sunday as it approaches the South Carolina coast
near Charleston. The tropical system is expected to turn to the
northeast on Sunday and slowly move up the Carolina coastline through
Wednesday.

Rainfall is expected to produce the most significant impacts from this
system, as an average of 1 to 3 inches is forecast to fall between
Saturday afternoon and Sunday night across northeast South Carolina
and southeast North Carolina. A few locations may receive as much as
4 inches of rain.

Sustained winds of 30 mph with gusts of 40 to 50 mph are expected to
spread across Georgetown County on Sunday, and potentially into
eastern Williamsburg and southern Horry counties as well. Elsewhere
across northeastern South Carolina, winds will range from 10 to
20 mph, with gusts to 30 mph along the coast. Significant impacts from
wind are less likely across southeast North Carolina.

Rough surf and an increased danger of strong rip currents can be
expected beginning late Saturday afternoon and continuing through
Sunday along the entire coast from Georgetown County northward to
Pender County.

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.

* Wind:
protect against hazardous wind having possible limited impacts across
northeast South Carolina. Potential impacts include:
    - damage to porches, awnings, carports, sheds, and unanchored
      Mobile homes is possible. 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. Some fences and roadway
      signs damaged.
    - Scattered power and communications outages are possible.

* Other coastal hazards:
    -rough surf will develop along the northeast South Carolina coast
     by late Saturday afternoon and will spread to the coast of
     southeast North Carolina by Sunday. There will be an increasing
     danger of strong rip currents beginning Saturday afternoon and
     continuing through Sunday for all area beaches.

* Surge:
protect against locally hazardous surge having possible limited
impacts across northeast South Carolina. Potential impacts in
this area include:
    - localized inundation and minor over-wash is possible, mainly
      along immediate shorelines and other vulnerable low-lying areas
      along the coast. Low spots along waterways and tidal creeks may
      also be impacted.
    - Some portions of near-shore roads and parking lots may become
      covered by surge water. Driving conditions may become hazardous
      in places where the surge covers the Road.
    - Moderate beach erosion is possible, mainly in the vulnerable
      locations along the ocean front.
    - Minor damage to marinas, docks, boardwalks, and piers is
      possible. A few small craft may break away from moorings if not
      properly secured.
    - Navigation may be difficult near inlets and waterways, as
      navigational aids may be off station or missing.

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

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

* other preparedness information:
now is the time to bring to completion all preparations to protect
life and property in accordance with your emergency plan.

Outside preparations should be wrapped up as soon as possible before
weather conditions deteriorate.

Always heed the advice of local officials and comply with any
orders that are issued. Remember, during the storm 9 1 1 emergency
services may not be able to immediately respond if conditions are
unsafe. This should be a big factor in your decision making.

Check-in with your emergency points of contact among family, friends,
and workmates. Inform them of your status and well-being. Let them
know how you intend to ride out the storm and when you plan to
check-in again.

In emergencies it is best to remain calm. Stay informed and focused
on the situation at hand. Exercise patience with those you encounter.
Be a good samaritan and helpful to others.

If you are a visitor and still in the area, listen for the name of
the city or town in which you are staying within local news updates.
Be sure you know the name of the County or Parish in which it
resides. Pay attention for instructions from local authorities.

Closely monitor NOAA Weather Radio or other local news outlets for
official storm information. Be ready to adapt to possible changes to
the forecast.

supplies kit is stocked and ready.

Always heed the advice of local officials and comply with any orders
that are issued. Do not needlessly jeopardize your life or the lives
of others.

When securing your property, outside preparations should be conducted
as soon as possible before conditions deteriorate. The onset of
strong gusty winds and heavy rain can cause certain preparedness
activities to become unsafe.

Be a good samaritan and check on those who may not be fully aware of
the situation or who are unable to make personal preparations.

Visitors to the area should become familiar with nearby surroundings.
If you are a visitor, know the name of the County in which
you are located and where it is relative to current watches and
warnings. If staying at a hotel, ask the management staff about their
on-site disaster plan. Listen for evacuation orders, especially
pertaining to area visitors.

Closely monitor NOAA Weather Radio or other local news outlets for
official storm information. Listen for possible changes to the
forecast.

Always heed the advice of local officials and comply with any orders
that are issued. Do not needlessly jeopardize your life or the lives
of others.

When securing your property, outside preparations should be conducted
as soon as possible before conditions deteriorate. The onset of
strong gusty winds and heavy rain can cause certain preparedness
activities to become unsafe.

Be a good samaritan and check on those who may not be fully aware of
the situation or who are unable to make personal preparations.

Visitors to the area should become familiar with nearby surroundings.
If you are a visitor, know the name of the County in which
you are located and where it is relative to current watches and
warnings. If staying at a hotel, ask the management staff about their
on-site disaster plan. Listen for evacuation orders, especially
pertaining to area visitors.

Closely monitor NOAA Weather Radio or other local news outlets for
official storm information. Listen for possible changes to the
forecast.

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

* changes to watches and warnings:
    - none

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

* storm information:
    - about 340 miles south-southeast of Wilmington NC or about 320
      miles south-southeast of Myrtle Beach SC
    - 29.5n 76.4w
    - storm intensity 35 mph
    - movement west-northwest or 300 degrees at 12 mph

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

Tropical depression number 2 located 320 miles southeast of Myrtle
Beach is expected to strengthen into a tropical storm as it
approaches the South Carolina coast late Saturday. The tropical
system could potentially move onshore across central or the southern
portions of South Carolina early Sunday, then meander towards the
northeast. Locally heavy rainfall and moderate winds are possible
from this system.

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

* flooding rain:
prepare for 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.

* Wind:
prepare for hazardous wind having possible limited impacts across
southeast North Carolina and northeast South Carolina. Potential
impacts include:
    - damage to porches, awnings, carports, sheds, and unanchored
      Mobile homes is possible. 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. Some fences and roadway
      signs damaged.
    - A few roads may become impassable due to debris, particularly
      within urban or heavily wooded locations. Hazardous driving
      conditions are possible, especially for high profile vehicles
      on bridges and other elevated roadways.
    - Scattered power and communications outages are possible.

* Surge:
prepare for locally hazardous surge having possible limited impacts
across northeastern South Carolina. Potential impacts in this area
include:
    - localized inundation and minor over-wash is possible, mainly
      along immediate shorelines and other vulnerable low-lying areas
      along the coast. Low spots along waterways and tidal creeks may
      also be impacted.
    - Some portions of near-shore roads and parking lots may become
      covered by surge water. Driving conditions may become hazardous
      in places where the surge covers the Road.
    - Moderate beach erosion is possible, mainly in the vulnerable
      locations along the ocean front.
    - Minor damage to marinas, docks, boardwalks, and piers is
      possible. A few small craft may break away from moorings if not
      properly secured.
    - Navigation may be difficult near inlets and waterways, as
      navigational aids may be off station or missing.

Precautionary/preparedness actions
