Severe Storms Move into SEK


Damage reports are coming in from storms earlier this morning and afternoon.  


Reports from the public in Dexter indicate widespread wind-driven hail damage to siding and windows blown out around town.  Trees in Piedmont in Greenwood County have been reported uprooted.  Structural damage to a building has also been reported in Moline.  Tornado sirens were sounded in Longton after a report of a tornado, but the National Weather Service never issued a tornado warning, saying the development would be unlikely in that area and the main hazard was straight-line winds.   A severe thunderstorm watch remains in effect for the area for now as additional development of strong to severe storms remains possible this afternoon.

***** Original Story *****



The area could see a storm or two develop today with a limited possibility of severe weather.


According to the National Weather Service, the four-state area could see thunderstorms come through this afternoon through early evening, with a better chance of storms east of I-135.  Storms may be able to produce some dime to quarter-size hail.  KGGF will provide severe weather coverage if storms develop.
