Surprise (early) tropical storm. Tropical storm Bertha developed overnight and made landfall a little northeast of Charleston. Although hurricane season doesn't officially start until June 1, Bertha is the second named storm of the 2020 season. Like any stormy day, surprise or not, expect flooding – Bertha might bring eight inches to some areas. Source: Chswx 
S.C. leaves food on table for hungry kids. South Carolina has yet to apply for a federal program that would provide benefit cards to help children who normally rely on school for food. The program would provide $5.70 for every day of missed school. Source: NYT

Republicans debate. The Republican congressional primary debate took place Monday night. The primary is in two weeks, on June 9. Source: P&C

Masks lead to hostility. Charleston's food community has gotten sucked into mask politics, as diners' opinions on masks at restaurants clash. Source: P&C
