Thanks guys! Apparently, it basically followed W Georgia road , from Woodmont High, and even into the clock tower area of downtown Sville!

skipping along. My opinion is, it was Definitely a tornado! Based on sounds and scariness of my experience 

Radar data supports a tornado for sure.....

Yep that was a nasty couplet from Anderson county up into Spartanburg county. It thankfully weakened coming into my area. I'm sure GSP will confirm a tornado at least in Greenville county with that cell.

As per usual, the strong part of the line is falling apart N of ATL and the storms will hit about Aiken to Greenwood, to CAE! I guess we will still get some rain, but would be nice to get a t storm !

Glad you're ok.  Looks like you and I both got more than we bargained for.  I was downplaying this event just like you and we both had possible tornados come right over us.   I guess be careful what you wish for eh?

Did some internet research and looked at damage ratings, and just based out of my neighborhood, I'd say F1-maybe low low F2, just my very amateur opinion

Wow that chair pic is amazing. Looks like something you'd see in the midwest or from a hurricane.

I agree! I should be very careful about downplaying a severe weather threat, won't do that again!! Can't make any promises on snow events!:)

Also props to nrgjeff for the good call on the Atlanta tornado.  You called it about ten minutes before the TW got hoisted. 

 

Also big props to the severe weather crew members from other regions. You guys always provide very good information and warnings to us and any other region that has a severe weather day. I'm sure I speak for the whole SE crew when I say thank you and please drop by again!

If we had gotten sunlight and more instability, this would have been a really major event covering a larger area. Something more like 4-4-89 or 5-5-89. That 5-5-89 event was awful from around Boiling Springs and Chesnee in SC through the western piedmont of NC. GSP has a very nice write up about that event on its webpage.

I saw your photos.  That's some pretty hefty damage sir.  You are very lucky.

Was a confirmed tornado touchdown in Simpsonville, per NWS, they said it was only 100 yds wide, and are still working to determine strength

Damn. Glad you are ok.

I was on Weather Channel app and saw a video that said "View inside screaming tornado" and it showed that it was from Simpsonville.

Crazy this was just a mile or two north of me.  Thought I heard some rumbling but couldn't be sure it wasn't air traffic from charlotte douglas.

Wow, not very often that a board member is right in the path of a tornado.  Glad you are ok.  Did you experience any ear popping or other notable phenomena?

No ear popping, I think the "center" of the tornado, missed my house by 75 yds or so! But the rumble, then the power outage as the rumble got closer, then all you hear is snapping trees and stuff hitting the house and your just looking up and hoping the roof stays on and a tree doesn't come through! Very terrifying, but over in about 15 seconds!

Scary. I'm glad your family is ok. Eons ago, like 1997, I remember being in the path of a f1 tornado during a party at the house. The tornado skipped over us with damage to our immediate sw and ne. The sound was insane.

68 total tornado reports from the Southeast this week. It seems to have been a deadly, awful week for the Southeast. I'm a little bit affected by the fire destruction pictures from Gatlinburg, because I have been there 3 times.
