This tornado primarily remained EF-0/EF-1 as it moved across portions of North Litchfield Beach near Boyle Dr. and Cayman Loop where several very large limbs were down. The tornado picked up some strength as it moved near Lakeshore Dr. (likely just west of the road) before crossing near Trace Dr near the intersection of Cockle Shell Ct.  There were numerous large trees uprooted in the woods on the north side of Trace Dr. The tornado then lifted northeast into Huntington State Park causing minor damage to some trees near the parking area and some shingle damage to the castle building. The tornado likely moved along the beach of the state park before moving offshore and passing very near the Murrells Inlet WeatherFlow meteorological station where it recorded a wind gust to 114 mph (EF-2 waterspout).
