The same storm that produced a tornado at Edisto Beach also produced a tornado on Seabrook Island. This tornado developed in the southwest portion of Seabrook Island west of the intersection of Seabrook Island Road and Camp Christopher Lane. The tornado traveled northeast about 1.25 miles while snapping off or uprooting dozens of trees and breaking off numerous large branches. A garage was significantly damaged when a large tree fell on it. Several other homes sustained minor damage due to trees falling near homes or large branches falling on homes. The most significant damage occurred on or near the golf course. The tornado dissipated just northeast of the intersection of Seabrook Island Road and The Lookout Road.
