A line of severe storms knocked down trees, produced dangerous lightning and dumped heavy rains across a portion of Georgetown County.
The storms moved into Georgetown County around 7 p.m. and left behind many toppled trees that survived this past winter's ice storms. The bulk of the damage was in the Carvers Bay and Pleasant Hill areas.
So far, we have not received any reports of major damage to homes but the National Weather Service reported power lines down and a tree on a car about six miles from Nesmith near Andrews.
More thunderstorms are possible Friday.
