NWS Confirmed EF-1 Tornado in Upstate Friday Night

Friday night after a tornado watch was issued for the county, heavy rains and wind rolled through neighborhoods, and Saturday morning the long clean up began at a house on O Street in Anderson, where a tree landed on the home. No one was hurt, according to officials. Anderson wasn’t the only area that saw damage from storms.

The National Weather Service confirmed an EF-1 tornado hit from northern Laurens County to southern Spartanburg County, and that the preliminary maximum wind speed was estimated near 100 miles per hour.
