From the AP:

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) -- Forecasters say the center of Tropical Storm Hanna has hit the tourist beaches near the line between North and South Carolina.

The National Hurricane Center said Hanna came on shore at about 3:20 a.m. Saturday. The storm had winds near 70 mph before it roared onto land.

The storm is expected to race up the Eastern Seaboard and dump heavy rain over the weekend from Virginia to New England.

Emergency officials are already looking past Hanna to Hurricane Ike several hundreds miles out in the Atlantic. Ike is more powerful than Hanna and could be approaching southern Florida by Monday as Hanna spins away over the North Atlantic.

It looks like it is raining all the way up to NJ already -
