This is from Lee County, AL near Beauregard from earlier today. I’m not a surveyor, but this looks like AT LEAST EF4 damage. 

Almost every tree is snapped, debarked, or denuded. Structure is completely gone.

Its right on the friggen radar site so that rotation it was seeing was LOW, hard to tell now if there is a TDS etc.....lots of clutter, still looks like the town of Red Bank or just north of there is gonna get the couplet....

With the Sig showing on radar and it being that close (beam low), I would suspect it is on ground as well.

It may have occluded and now its reforming a touch north in the meso...if this hold up it would be on track to hit right into downtown Columbia....literally right over the radar almost now so hard to say whats going on.....

Per WLTX, there was a TOG near Red Bank, SC in Lexington County, SC.

Yeah there was a TDS then as well, sucks for the next 3-5 mins we wont get a good look cause its over/near the radar....

Per the Columbia NWS, there are two circulations within the cell clusters, a new low level rotation is on the northwest side of Columbia near the Riverbanks Zoo headed towards Eau Claire (north of Downtown)

Just south of St Andrews might be trying to take over, which would put Columbia downtown in the path.....pretty messy, dont see anything that screams TOG though....

No matter what there will be some serious winds be it straightline or downburst all over the Columbia metro area outside of any tornado damage....

The Columbia NWS office has adjusted the TW to cover the northern circulation that likely triggered a TOG near the Zoo
