(WSPA) — A possible tornado was spotted as severe thunderstorms moved across the Upstate and western North Carolina.
The reported tornado was spotted by a trained observer just before 7 p.m. Thursday near Sandy Springs in Anderson County.
A storm survey team from the National Weather Service will head to Anderson County on Friday to determine if a tornado occurred in that area, and if so, how strong it was based on damage.
The severe storms also blew down a concentrated area of trees from Townville through Northlake near Clemson Boulevard.
Widely scattered storms are possible Friday afternoon as a front continues to move out of the area, but severe storm chances are much lower.
