    Heavy rain and strong winds reached Charleston, South Carolina on Thursday morning as Tropical Storm Elsa moved north along the Atlantic Coast. The National Weather Service says a Tropical Storm warning is in effect for Charleston on Thursday morning.

    The National Hurricane Center said Elsa’s winds weakened to 40 mph (65 kph) as it made its way into southern South Carolina early Thursday. Elsa is forecast to move over South Carolina and North Carolina later in the day, pass near the eastern mid-Atlantic states by Thursday night and move near or over the northeastern United States on Friday.

    Forecasters predicted Elsa would remain a tropical storm into Friday, and issued a tropical storm watch from North Carolina to Massachusetts.

    Authorities in Jacksonville, Florida, said one person was killed Wednesday when a tree fell and struck two cars. The National Weather Service reported 50 mph (80 kph) wind gusts in the city. The tree fell during heavy rains and no one else was injured, according to Capt. Eric Prosswimmer of the Jacksonville Fire Rescue Department.

    There was a risk of flooding from Elsa in Georgia and South Carolina, which were predicted to get 3 to 5 inches (8 to 13 centimeters) of rainfall. A couple of tornadoes are possible Thursday morning from southeastern Georgia into the coastal plain of South Carolina.
