Tropical Depression Bonnie
August 13, 2004
On August 13, 2004 Remnants of once Hurricane Bonnie, which made landfall on the Florida Panhandle, tracked northeastward across Eastern North Carolina. The effects of Bonnie included some strong gusty winds to coastal areas and heavy downpours. However most of the damage associated with Bonnie was the result of three tornadoes which spun up as the center of the tropical depression with remnants of the eye wall crossed the area. Bonnie also brought heavy rainfall across parts of Eastern North Carolina. This would saturate the ground ahead of Hurricane Charley making flooding more likely as that storm passed through the area.
