Florida gets ready for some strong storms today

The National Weather Service said flash flood watches Tuesday extended from southeast Louisiana across Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, the Carolinas and a sliver of southern Virginia. Strong storms are also forecast for Richland and Lexington counties, and many other Midlands counties.

The storms are expected to remain in the area until around 11 p.m. when they finally begin to break up and move out of Charlotte.

The NWS confirmed that an EF-1 tornado, with estimated winds between 105 and 110 miles per hour, hit the town of Autryville and the Bearskin community east of Fayetteville. But the man said his mobile home was left intact.

The newspaper also reports numerous trees have been toppled and there are multiple reports of property damage near the Davie County line. No serious injuries were reported. The saturated ground will provide Wednesday's storms with the opportunity to create flooding issues. "The National Weather Service said radar showed debris being picked up by a tornado in some different parts of the country".
