Tropical storm Ana became the first named tropical system of the 2015 Atlantic Hurricane Season and was first classified as a subtropical or hybrid storm. It made landfall at 6 a.m. EDT Sunday May 10, 2015, as a tropical storm along the coast of South Carolina and weakened to a tropical depression less than eight hours later. Despite weakening, Ana was still expected to deliver soaking rain across eastern North Carolina and into southeastern Virginia through Monday. Ana's leftover moisture will also spread into some coastal areas of the Northeast.
