Bertha is expected to produce heavy rainfall across portions of eastern and central South Carolina, west-central to far southeastern North Carolina, and southwest Virginia. This rainfall may produce life-threatening flash flooding. Bertha is also expected to bring tropical storm winds to portions of the South Carolina coast within the next few hours.
