Edouard Not Expected to Reach Hurricane Status

September 03, 2002|Times Wire Reports

Tropical storm watches were posted along the southern half of South Carolina's coast, with Tropical Storm Edouard heading east in the Atlantic Ocean about 200 miles offshore.

The affected area stretched from Titusville, Fla., through the Georgia-South Carolina borderline.

The hurricane season's fifth named storm was moving east at about 5 mph with maximum sustained winds of 40 mph. But officials did not expect it to reach hurricane status.

A weak Tropical Storm Dolly continued to pose no threat to land as it churned out in the Atlantic.
