A reported tornado caused extensive damage early Friday morning near Charleston, South Carolina.
The storm was reported about 12:40 a.m. EDT with the National Weather Service forecast office in Charleston reporting that debris from the tornado was being picked up on radar. Tornado warnings were issued as a result of the storm.
“The tornado was especially dangerous because it spun up quickly when it did,” AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Dan Pydynowski said. “That can make the situation even more dangerous as people go to bed for the night and are not aware of the tornado warning that may be issued.”
There was no immediate word on injuries as a result of the storm.
