Storms Trigger Warnings, Watches

(WLTX) - Parts of the Midlands dealt with hail, high winds, and heavy rain as severe storms moved through the area Monday night.

The storms began popping up around 6 p.m. News19 Chief Meteorologist Jim Gandy says an upper level disturbance coming from the Tennessee River Valley interacted with hot, humid air to trigger the storms.

Several severe thunderstorm warnings were issued, but perhaps the most serious threat came around 10:20 p.m. when Doppler radar indicated a tornado in Orangeburg County near the Interstate 26 and Interstate 95 interchange.

It remains unclear if an actual twister touched down. That same storm cell also produced large hail.
