The National Weather service in Columbia says prelminary information from storm survey confirms tornado touchdown from Lexington to Irmo.

That rotating severe thunderstorm rushed north along the US 29 corridor out of North Carolina, where a tornado responsible for one death and at least 10 injuries tracked for almost 34 miles after touching down in Greensboro.

On Friday, the weather system produced 17 reports of tornadoes in Arkansas, Louisiana, Missouri and Texas, with four people injured and 160 buildings damaged in a possible tornado in northwest Arkansas, local media reported.

However, if the damage on either side of the damage path is blown down in one direction on the left side and the opposite direction on the other side of the path, it's likely it was a tornado that caused the damage.

They have confirmed a EF-0 tornado in Harrison County 6 Miles southwest of Waskom that tore a roof of a barn and took down many large tree branches.

Guilford County Schools Superintendent Sharon Contreras told news reporters that classes would be canceled Tuesday because of the storm. There were no injuries from that brief storm.


Communities near Lynchburg began to survey and clean up tornado damage Monday after a line of storms swept across the entire state Sunday and early Monday.

Tornadoes damaged several homes in neighboring Union County, which had two tornadoes, County Judge Mike Loftin said. As the tornado continued into Chicot County, two sets of wooden transmission poled were found snapped and a mobile home sustained damage.

Police said 48-year-old Anthony George of Greensboro was killed about 5:45 p.m. Sunday when a tree fell on his auto.

Duke Energy reported about 37,000 customers without power in North Carolina.

Duke had about 2,300 customers without service in SC.
