Hurricane experts are still scratching their heads this morning, trying to figure out Bonnie's next move.
A hurricane warning was issued this morning from Murrells Inlet, South Carolina to the North Carolina- Virginia border, which means Bonnie could make landfall within the next 36 hours.
Bonnie's erratic behavior has left residents along the Atlantic coast stocking up on supplies.
But not many are running for cover, yet.
