Tropical Storm Bonnie

Aug. 10

Tropical Storm Bonnie is moving in the Gulf of Mexico this morning.

But the National Hurricane Center in Miami says the storm could turn to the northeast and the remnants could be in central South Carolina by Friday morning.

At 5 a.m., Bonnie was 390 miles south of the mouth of the Mississippi River. The storm is moving west northwest at eight miles an hour. Bonnie is expected to turn to the north in the next 24 hours.

Highest winds are 50 miles an hour and some strengthening is possible today.

The storm's winds would have dropped sharply by the time it reaches South Carolina, if it heads this way.
