A brief, weak tornado touched down in J Verne Smith Park in Greenville County, downing limbs and uprooting some small trees. The tornado downed more limbs along Oneal Church Road, but then uprooted a tree on a house on Scruggs Circle. The tornado briefly intensified to its peak winds of 85 mph in a wooded area along a small creek between Scruggs Circle and Gratiot Lane, where several trees were uprooted. The tornado rapidly weakened and lifted just beyond this area of uprooted trees.
We appreciate the assistance of Greenville County Emergency Management as well as residents along Gratiot Lane who granted us access to their property.
