Orangeberg might be next under the gun. Pop of over 10k. Roughly 10 or so warnings out right now. Just awful

Nado hit I26 at exit 145, but holy **** that line was wicked! Felt like the opening scene of twister when it went from calm and dry lightning to all hell breaking loose in a matter of minutes. Me and my parents are fine, just had one CC pass close enough we could hear the "train whistle" in the distance and got one strong wind gust that was easily TS force and some pea-sized hail.

I see most of the se crew is accounted for. Hopefully those that haven’t checked in, do so soon. I’m in Fountain Inn. The sound of generators and chainsaw’s fill the air, trees down mostly, damage to roofs, etc, and of course no power. St. Matthews got hit pretty hard. My son in law (fireman) and his crew are just now getting into the area because of all the debris.

There’s 0 damage in my yard but tons of insulation and building materials from other houses. And there’s not another house within 1/4 mile of my 11 acres. I assume this is all fallout from the Seneca tornado?

I think it’s safe to say this was a major tornado outbreak. When you throw in all of the intense tornadoes we had last night into this morning, I would be surprised if we didn’t end up with 50-80 tornadoes out of this, several of which were strong/violent (looks like 3-4 violent potentially based off radar signatures, which isn’t perfect by any stretch). We may not have gotten several discrete cells, but we didn’t need it in this environment to get an outbreak.

You are correct. It looked like it went right over you. Glad to hear you all are okay.

Walterboro to Summerville got hit pretty good. I’m still waiting to hear from people...ugh. I’m glad to hear they’re okay!  I don’t think Oconee(among a lot of others) has checked in yet, and I’m counting everyone off the list as they do. I’m really happy to hear those that have checked in are relatively unscathed for the most part :hug: Hopefully everyone else checks in soon.

This appears to be the biggest outbreak in SC in my memory bank. Seems like at least 15-20 tornadoes touched down overnight with several likely ef3+. From extreme upstate to the southern coast.
