The National Weather Service in SC confirmed a tornado touched down west of Saluda.

The National Weather Service isn't predicting much of a chance of rain throughout today.

Sampson County Sheriff Jimmy Thornton said one man was treated by emergency personnel after suffering minor injuries when a mobile home overturned. The hardest hit area was just north of Chetek, where high-end EF2 damage was found. the rest of the path ranged from EF0 to EF1 with mainly tree damage, and mostly minor structural damage. The storms were expected to bring the threat of flash flooding.

However, given recent rains and the saturated ground, a Flash Flood Watch remains in effect until 2 p.m.

The tornado watch covers Athens, Atlanta, Gainesville and Rome.

On Thursday, more storms are expected, with some forecast to be severe with damaging straight line wind gusts and hail the size of golf balls.

Expect another batch of thunderstorms to form Thursday as the front pushes over Central Florida.

The storms prediction center upgraded the area from a slight risk to an enhanced risk around 12:30 p.m.
