Tornado watch issued for portion of SC


The National Weather Service reported a storm with rotation was spotted near Troutman, south of Statesville, and moved east toward Cool Springs and the intersection of three counties near Interstate 40.

A tornado watch and multiple weather hazard warnings are in effect for Volusia and Flager counties through the evening hours and the Storm Prediction Center said this afternoon that the risk for severe weather has increased. Some storms could be severe, with damaging winds.

Severe thunderstorms with damaging winds and tornadoes are expected to rake through parts of the Southeast, including Florida, Wednesday.

The National Weather Service declared a tornado watch until 6 p.m. for 22 counties in the state, including nearly all of the Lowcountry. At 3:15 p.m., the weather service said a tornado was confirmed southwest of Prosperity and moving northeast.

The Statesville Record & Landmark reports at least two mobile homes have been destroyed in a portion of Iredell County near U.S. Highway 64. Damage to roofs, windows, and vehicles will occur.


The storms came after a series of powerful thunderstorms swept across parts of the state on Tuesday.

SCE&G was reporting about 30 power outages in Saluda County, 48 in Richland County and 286 in Orangeburg County late Wednesday afternoon.

Look for rising temperatures into the upper 70s to low 80s tomorrow after showers push out of the area.

"There will be a lot of thunder and lightning overnight Wednesday and it will continue through Thursday morning", Maloch said.

Skies are expected to clear Friday with sunshine and highs in the 80s.
