COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - The University of South Carolina athletics department has decided to postpone Monday evening's victory celebration following the women's basketball team's historic national championship.
The celebration was set for 4 p.m. and then moved to 8 p.m., but the threat of severe weather has put a damper on that plan.
The school issued a statement late Monday afternoon:
WIS First Alert meteorologist Tim Miller says to expect some gusty winds, heavy rain, and dangerous hail due to the storm.
"I'm really concerned about these storms. You know I don't normally say that," Miller said. "There are some pretty violent storms in Mississippi and Alabama and a lot of this energy is headed our way."
