COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - A leaky roof made life difficult for the meteorologists at the National Weather Service in Columbia as Tropical Storm Michael rolled through the Midlands.

The incident happened as Tropical Storm Michael rolled through South Carolina after making a catastrophic landfall on the Florida Panhandle and rolling through Georgia Wednesday into Thursday.

While the servers in the Greenville office are up and running again, the NOAA weather radios and the Columbia radar would be down until further notice, but were back up and running around noon Thursday.
