Tornado warning issued for county until 4:30 pm

Tornado warning issued for county until 4:30 pm

The two suspected tornadoes, along with another reported in Lancaster County, stemmed from a line of severe storms that made its way across the state Wednesday afternoon.

The watch was issued shortly before 7 a.m., and it is set to expire at 3 p.m.

The National Weather Service said the tornado reached EF-3 strength, with winds around 140 miles per hour, near the Village of Conrath in Rusk County.

The possible tornado may have touched down in the area, which is at the coast, before moving over the water, Shashy said. But the man said his mobile home was left intact.

The newspaper also reports numerous trees have been toppled and there are multiple reports of property damage near the Davie County line.

The storms came after a series of powerful thunderstorms swept across parts of the state on Tuesday.

Israelis worry Trump's changing stands look more and more like Obama's
Notably, Trump dropped the word "authority" from Abbas' title in his Riyadh speech, calling Abbas simply Palestinian president. Abbas appears more inclined to do that, perhaps as a gesture to Trump, several analysts said.

Residents should remain indoors and keep in mind that severe hail can potentially smash auto windshields, cause injuries and punch holes in roofs, the National Weather Service said.

The threat of severe storms Tuesday is prompting a tornado watch for Middle Georgia and counties to the south.

The focal point for severe weather late Wednesday afternoon and evening will be a warm front surging in from the south.

The Newberry County Sheriff's Office said a possible tornado passed near Prosperity Wednesday afternoon.

Rain is expected to continue through Thursday with a 60-percent chance of showers before clearing up through the weekend, forecasters say.
