Tropical Storm Bertha makes landfall onto South Carolina coast near Charleston. It was a quick formation from an area of low pressure to a tropical storm followed by a landfall Wednesday morning. Bertha is moving northwest over inland South Carolina with heavy rain and flash flooding threat, tropical storm winds and isolated risk for severe storms. Bertha is expected to weaken soon as it moves through South Carolina's Lowcountry region. Bertha is the second named storm to form this year before hurricane season officially begins.
