Tropical Storm Andrea formed rapidly over the southeastern Gulf of Mexico on Wednesday 5 June. Andrea tracked north and made landfall near the Big Bend region of the Florida Panhandle. Maximum sustained winds just prior to landfall were estimated to be 63 mph. Andrea tracked across Florida and southeast Georgia, weakening rapidly, and the center of circulation entered South Carolina approximately 0330 on Friday, 7 June with a narrow eastern envelope of 46 mph sustained winds. Andrea rapidly swept across the State and up the eastern seaboard Friday afternoon, 7 June.

Tropical Storm Andrea produced only minimal coastal damage: minor flooding, downed trees and power lines, and minor beach erosion. A surfer offshore North Myrtle Beach went missing in heavy surf 8 June, and was not recovered.
