NOTE: This has not yet been declared a FEMA Disaster.
A newly formed tropical depression could make landfall later Monday near the Georgia-South Carolina border, according to the National Hurricane Center.
Heavy rainfall and strong gusty winds with dangerous rip currents are forecast for southeast Georgia. Some showers could arrive later Monday morning ahead of the depression’s center.
“Gusty winds are possible with this storm, but the main threat to land will be any persistent downpours where flash flooding is possible, especially in any low-lying and poor drainage areas,” AccuWeather meteorologist Nicole LoBiondo said.
Rough surf and stronger-than-normal rip currents are likely along the Southeast coast as this system churns up the ocean.
If the depression’s wind speed reaches 39 mph this afternoon or evening, it would be named Tropical Storm Danny. If this happens, tropical storm warnings could go into effect or a portion of the Georgia and South Carolina coasts with short notice.
