A tornado touched down in northwestern Fairfield County early Monday, snapping a cluster of trees and weakening before doing minor damage to a house and outbuildings, according to the National Weather Service.
The tornado hit at 10:27 a.m. near S.C. 215 and Shelton Road, continued east for three or four minutes before damaging trees near Clowney Road. The National Weather Service had issued a tornado warning about five minutes before the twister hit.
A tornado watch is in effect until 10 p.m. for much of central South Carolina, including Richland, Lexington and Kershaw counties. That means conditions are favorable for formation of tornadoes.
