The same storm that produced a tornado at Edisto Beach and another on Seabrook Island produced a third tornado on Kiawah Island. The tornado developed near the 12th hole of a golf course and traveled east-northeast down the fairway and into a residential neighborhood before dissipating just east of Green Winged Teal Road. Evidence of the tornado was clearly seen on both sides of the fairway. Several large trees were snapped off or had large branches broken off.
