Speedy Andrea heading out of South Carolina


After making its way through parts of Florida and Georgia Thursday, Tropical Storm Andrea is speeding through South Carolina on its way north.

According to the National Hurricane Center, the storm's eye is in Latta, South Carolina, and looks to be making a quick exit to the northeast coast of the United States.

The storm brought very little severe weather to the state, but brought plenty of rain. In fact, Derrec Becker with the South Carolina Emergency Management Division said the storm was nothing more than a severe thunderstorm.

Several inches of rain fell in the Midlands. By the time the storm has fully moved on to its next target, parts of the area may have between 2 to 4 inches of rain.

As for wind, the storm did take out tree branches and even knocked out power in parts of the state.

At one point, SCE&G said Richland County had just over 1,300 people without power in the Forest Acres community, In Charleston County, nearly 6,000 customers were affected.

No injuries have been reported and there have been no reports of significant damage.
