Charleston police are warning motorists to stay safe while driving through the City of Charleston as the effects of Tropical Storm Bonnie continue to be felt.

Police spokesman Charles Francis said expected high winds and rainfall could cause problems that could affect motorists.

"In particular, motorists are asked to be aware for tree limbs or downed power lines as a result of higher wind gusts and to be alert to flooded roads and to not drive into flooded areas," Francis said.

Bonnie is expected to remain over the Tri-County area well into Sunday before moving towards Myrtle Beach by 2 p.m.

Chief Meteorologist Bill Walsh said rain may be heavy at times and isolated flooding is a possibility.

A Tropical Storm Warning remains in effect for the area.
