April 12 Severe Event

Recommended Posts

Wow, glad you are ok. I guess this is the south welcoming you....

Yeah no kidding.

One thing I wanted to say when I was within a mile of it was during the updraft portion as it got very calm, I could see my breath that’s how humid it is. I have never seen anything like that in my life, but you could literally feel the moisture being fed into the storm.

Thankfully okay and have power again. But looks rough north of town and over towards Walterboro

Wild morning here. Had some big gusts before the storms moved thru. Lots of Tornado warnings in my area and even a confirmed one about 10 miles to my west but nothing much in my neighborhood thank goodness. Horrible damage from those areas that got slammed by this.

Holy hell. That looks like at least EF-4 damage depending on how well-built that home was.

I’m going with not at all well built. I see strait nails on the bottom right and it looks like the whole thing is on cinder blocks not anchored to the ground in any way. I don’t see a concrete pad anywhere in the higher res image. There’s a chances they only rate it EF3 depending on the evidence on the ground.

Some of the aerial photos also show very intermittent destruction of houses, which supports the idea that (at least some of) these houses were not well anchored.

2020 has been a wild ride... This system just adds to it. When was the last time we had this big of an outbreak at night?

November 2002 crossed my mind as a mostly night event if I’m placing it correctly but I think that was evening and late evening and of course night is longer in November

Downdraft from the I26 twister this morning in Orangeburg blew a hole in the roof of Allied Air so I am out of work until further notice... Thank God nobody was working last night..

"It's OK we're in the RFD" followed by something slamming into their vehicle makes me wonder about their chasing abilities...

The fact that they were trying to chase a rain wrapped major tornado at what appeared to be 70 ish mph makes me wonder even more.  That's Russian roulette for all intents and purposes.

I have never seen anything like this before in my entire life. Seneca, SC pics taken by me which honestly don’t do it justice. The damage is very intense and widespread throughout Seneca.
