CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP):

Tropical storm warnings were up all along the South Carolina coast yesterday as a Tropical Storm Bonnie moves towards shore.

The National Hurricane Center said there was a small window yesterday for the depression to get winds of at least 39mph and it became Bonnie by late evening. That is what prompted the warnings, first issued last Friday.

Forecasters said several inches of rain could fall along the South Carolina and North Carolina coasts as the low pressure system nears shore late yesterday then moves northeast along the coast over the long Memorial Day weekend.

No evacuations were ordered up to late yesterday.
