Tropical Storm Claudette Pummels Southeastern U.S., Flash Floods Leave Major Damage

A tropical depression formed off the South Carolina-Georgia coast Monday is expected to make landfall in a matter of hours.

The National Hurricane Center said Monday it expects the depression will grow into a tropical storm before landfall. However, the center projects the anticipated tropical storm will weaken rapidly once it hits the coasts.

This is the fourth tropical depression of the 2021 hurricane season. If wind speeds from the depression reach 39 mph later on Monday, it will be named Tropical Storm Danny.

Maximum sustained winds of the depression are at about 35 mph. Tropical storm warnings have been issued for the parts of the coast, where tropical-storm-force winds are anticipated later this afternoon and tonight.

The latest advisory released by the NHC said that heavy rainfall is possible "from coastal southern South Carolina and Georgia, inland across the Piedmont of Georgia into northeast Alabama." Urban areas within the southern South Carolina and Georgia coasts may also see isolated flooding, the NHC reported.

Depression-generated swells, which could cause "life-threatening surf and rip currents," are expected to disturb parts of the South Carolina coast later in the day.

The direct Georgia and southern South Carolina coasts could see one to three inches of rain later on Monday. The NHC said that these areas have been dry recently, mitigating concern for widespread flooding from the depression. However, the center did not rule out the possibility of local flooding in urban areas around the coast.

Beyond the Georgia and South Carolina coasts, inland areas could see one to two inches of rain "across upstate South Carolina, the Piedmont of Georgia, and into northeastern Alabama," the NHC reported.

The NHC is expected to release its next intermediate advisory at 2 p.m. (EDT) and its next complete advisory at 5 p.m.

This is a breaking story and will be updated as more information becomes available.

Tropical Storm Danny makes landfall near Hilton Head, South Carolina

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Tropical Storm Danny made landfall Monday evening on South Carolina's coast, threatening to dump several inches of rain on parts of the Southeast as it blusters inland. Only hours after forming offshore, Danny had top sustained winds of 40 mph as it moved ashore just north of Hilton Head on Pritchards Island, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said. It added that Danny was expected to rapidly weaken over land as it heads into the Southeast on a track through parts of Georgia. The storm is expected to...

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Tropical Storm Danny made landfall Monday evening on South Carolina's coast, threatening to dump several inches of rain on parts of the Southeast as it blusters inland.

Only hours after forming offshore, Danny had top sustained winds of 40 mph as it moved ashore just north of Hilton Head on Pritchards Island, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said. It added that Danny was expected to rapidly weaken over land as it heads into the Southeast on a track through parts of Georgia.

The storm is expected to have minimal impacts on Western North Carolina. However, a few heavy downpours and strong storms are possible through Tuesday afternoon.

The fourth named storm of this Atlantic hurricane season formed close to South Carolina’s coast during the afternoon Monday. Forecasters said it could be a rainmaker as far inland as the north Georgia Piedmont area and in northeast Alabama.

Dangerous surf conditions also were expected along parts of the Southeast seacoast, along with a threat of isolated tornadoes near the coast.

Tropical storm force winds were already recorded Monday afternoon in some spots in South Carolina just hours after Danny formed. A weather station at Folly Beach — just outside Charleston — recorded a wind gust of 41 mph during the day, the Miami-based hurricane center said.

At 8 p.m., the storm was centered about 50 miles southwest of Charleston, South Carolina, according to the Miami-based hurricane center said. The system was moving to the west-northwest at 16 mph.

A tropical storm warning was posted earlier Monday from Edisto Beach to South Santee River in South Carolina. The hurricane center said tropical storm conditions were expected to continue in the warning area for a few more hours after landfall.

The storm could produce between 1 and 3 inches of rain with higher amounts in some coastal areas of Georgia and South Carolina. Forecasters said heavier rainfall could occur in some scattered spots but the region has been dry, limiting the potential threat of any widespread flooding.

Still, forecasters warned that some local flooding remained a possibility in urban areas along the coast and up to 1 to 2 inches of rain were possible elsewhere around South Carolina and in north Georgia and northeast Alabama.

Some brushed off the storm's potential impact.

In Savannah, Georgia, all systems were go for Tuesday night’s Savannah Bananas home baseball game as organizers eyed the storm. Officials for the collegiate summer league team planned to cover the field with tarp on Monday in preparation for the game.

“For us, being on the coast and being in Savannah, we get some nasty pop-up storms that can dump an inch of rain in just a few hours,” Bananas President Jared Orton said Monday. “This one doesn’t look like much more than just a nice, passing day of rain. I think we’re good to go as long as the sun comes out tomorrow.”

Tropical Storm Danny lands in SC; warning in place for Charleston and Berkeley counties

Tropical Storm Danny made landfall on the southern South Carolina coast this evening, but will have minimal impacts to the Charleston region beyond rain and gusty winds. Formerly Tropical Depression Four, the storm hit Pritchards Island, which is just north of Hilton Head, at approximately 8 p.m. on June 28. It’s the fourth named system of the year in the Atlantic basin. Only three times in the past have storms named with a “D” spun up before July 1, University of Miami researcher ...

Tropical Storm Danny made landfall on the southern South Carolina coast this evening, but will have minimal impacts to the Charleston region beyond rain and gusty winds.

Formerly Tropical Depression Four, the storm hit Pritchards Island, which is just north of Hilton Head, at approximately 8 p.m. on June 28.

It’s the fourth named system of the year in the Atlantic basin. Only three times in the past have storms named with a “D” spun up before July 1, University of Miami researcher Brian McNoldy wrote on Twitter.

As it approached the sea islands of Georgia and South Carolina, the formerly disorganized system started showing more of the spin that is characteristic of cyclones and fiercer thunderstorms began to fire near the center, still offshore and well south of Charleston. The explosive thunderstorms erupted quickly over the warm waters of the Gulf Stream.

But with little time left over water, the chances of strengthening further before an expected landfall south of Charleston were slim.

Wind gusts had packed some punch already. One recorded at Folly Beach reached 41 mph. According to Dominion Energy’s outage reporting system, about 574 households were without power in Berkeley, Charleston and Dorchester counties.

A tropical storm warning remains in effect for South Carolina’s coastal waters from the Georgia border to just south of Georgetown, and for Charleston and Berkeley counties, according to the National Weather Service’s Charleston area office. A flooding advisory was also issued for Beaufort and Jasper Counties.

The main flooding risk in the Charleston area could come this evening as the system moves ashore, and the tide rises at the same time. The next high tide at midnight is expected to reach 6.9 feet, just below the point where the lowest areas of the region begin to flood. But bands of rain earlier in the day had failed to produce much inundation.

Danny’s center was moving west-northwest around 16 mph, the Hurricane Center said, and packed 45 mph sustained winds, with stronger gusts.

— National Hurricane Center (@NHC_Atlantic) June 28, 2021

“Some slight strengthening is expected today, and the depression is forecast to become a tropical storm before it makes landfall,” the Hurricane Center said. “Rapid weakening is forecast after landfall occurs.”

Residents should be wary of rainfall, meteorologists said. The system is capable of producing 1 to 3 inches of rain broadly, with higher amounts in some areas. The heaviest rain is expected south of Charleston, according to the Weather Service, but the Holy City could see downpours and gusty winds.

“This region has been dry, limiting potential widespread flooding impacts, however, local flooding impacts, especially in urban areas along the southern South Carolina and Georgia coasts, cannot be ruled out at this time,” the Hurricane Center said.

About 1 to 2 inches of rain is possible in the South Carolina Upstate, Georgia Piedmont and into northeastern Alabama, forecasters said.

Forecasters also planned to keep an eye on any storm surge impacts from Port Royal Sound to the South Santee River.

If the surge comes at high tide, water could reach 1 to 3 feet above ground level, they said.

Shannon Scaff, Charleston’s emergency management director, said city agencies stand ready to act if needed.

As of the most recent forecast, it didn’t seem like the storm system would cause more than some potentially heavy rain, something Scaff said the city is well-versed in dealing with.

Like other emergency officials, he cautioned anyone who has to drive in the afternoon or evening hours to use caution.

Tropical systems in particular can cause significant localized downpours and flash flooding even though average rainfall may be moderate or minimal, Scaff said.

Danny, which the Hurricane Center called a “tiny” storm, was expected to move over Georgia on Tuesday and dissipate over that state’s mountains on Tuesday night.

Tropical Storm Danny makes landfall just north of Hilton Head. Here’s Tuesday’s outlook

Tropical Storm Danny made landfall near Pritchards Island, north of Hilton Head Island, just before 8 p.m. Monday, according to the National Hurricane Center.

The storm is expected to weaken as it moves inland. It is expected to move through east-central Georgia later Monday night and Tuesday morning.

Palmetto Electric Cooperative reported 467 power outages, and Dominion Energy reported 784 outages in Beaufort County as of 7:45 p.m. Monday.

The weather system off the South Carolina coast had strengthened into Tropical Storm Danny just after 3 p.m.

As of the 8 p.m. update, the system was moving west-northwest at 16 mph with maximum sustained winds of 40 mph.

Portions of South Carolina’s coast had been under a tropical storm warning for most of the afternoon. That includes areas from Edisto Beach to the South Santee River.

Locations north of Edisto Beach were the areas at greatest risk for wind, rainfall or tornadoes through 9 p.m. Monday, according to the National Weather Service.

A weather station at Folly Beach reported a wind gust of 41 mph earlier in the afternoon. A wind gust of 34 mph was reported at the Beaufort Airport.

The outer bands of the storm brought some rain and wind gusts to the Beaufort County area well before landfall, Ron Morales, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Charleston, said around 2:15 p.m.

He said the system was moving swiftly but wasn’t expected to impact the southern coastal part of the state as much as the Charleston area. Still, he expected noticeable wind and possible flooding.

“It’s hard to envision widespread flooding at this point, but there will be some ponding of water in places that get repeatedly hit by these showers that have come through over the last couple weeks,” Morales said.

Several inches of rain were expected along the coasts of southern South Carolina and Georgia through Tuesday. Danny is expected to produce 1 to 3 inches of rain along South Carolina’s coast, according to the latest bulletin. Because the region has been dry, the chance of widespread flooding was less, the bulletin said, but local flooding could not be ruled out.

The National Weather Service in Charleston issued a flood advisory until 9:30 p.m., according to an alert from the Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office.

The main risks with the storm, according to a briefing from the National Weather Service in Charleston, include:
