Severe Weather Event - May 6, 2003

During the afternoon of May 6, 2003, a Mesoscale Convective System (MCS) developed and strengthened over Northern Georgia and moved east at roughly 40 knots. The combination of a convective outflow boundary, an upper level disturbance, an unstable airmass provided the necessary ingredients for supercell thunderstorm development over South Carolina.

An F1 Tornado touched down in Williamsburg County, and there was wind damage in parts of Georgetown and Horry Counties.
