Crazy Weather Hits Midlands


By Rochelle Dean


Mother Nature brought heavy rain and even heavier gusts of winds through the area Wednesday night bringing down trees and threatening power lines in her path.

The National Weather Service reported wind gusts up to nearly 30 miles per hour through out the day over turning newspaper stands and street signs.

While there wasn't much flooding in the area, we did see our share of heavy downpours throughout the evening and could continue to see rain throughout the remainder of the night.

A tornado watch will remain in effect until 1 in the morning and a wind advisory in effect until 6 in the morning.

For the very latest on this storm, stay connected here online, and on air. ABC Columbia's Johnathan Oh will keep you in the know on Good Morning Columbia starting at 6am.
