Tornado Leaves Trail of Damage in Greenville County

An EF-2 tornado lashed across Greenville County Saturday night that uprooted trees, took the roof off of motel, damaging cars, and properties. No injuries or deaths are confirmed, but the tornado did leave plenty of damage in its wake.

According to the NWS, the EF-2 reached its peak intensity of 115 miles per hour and had a width of close to 400 yards as it lashed across Greenville County. The tornado started from the east of Montebello subdivision in Greenville and ended three miles south and southeast of Taylors after being on the ground for more than five miles.

Multiple large trees were down in the path of the tornado as well as power lines. Sav-Mor grocery store and Coronas Mexican Restaurant on Wade Hampton Boulevard, a hotel, and a restaurant near Rutherford Road, and a church reported structural damage.

The National Weather Service team and officials from Greenville County Emergency Management were on the scene Sunday morning to assess the damage.
