Tornado reported in Anderson Co., NWS to survey area

News

(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.
