PUBLIC INFORMATION STATEMENT
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE WILMINGTON NC
513 PM EDT SAT AUG 11 2007

...NWS STORM SURVEY CONFIRMS NON-TORNADIC WIND DAMAGE OF 100 MPH IN
HORRY COUNTY...

A LINE OF THUNDERSTORMS CROSSED INTO NORTHERN HORRY COUNTY AT
APPROXIMATELY 1020 PM FRIDAY EVENING. A NORTH-SOUTH SWATH OF
DAMAGE WAS FOUND CROSSING STATE ROUTE 9 NEAR DUFORD. DAMAGE WAS
MAINLY IN THE FORM OF LARGE SNAPPED TREES AND PEELED OFF ALUMINUM
ROOFING FROM SHEDS AND BARNS. THIS DAMAGE...WHICH IS CONSISTENT
WITH WIND SPEEDS RANGING FROM 60 TO 90 MPH...WAS SCATTERED FROM
JUST NORTH OF STATE ROUTE 9 FROM MOUNT OLIVE CHURCH ROAD TO BAY
VIEW DRIVE. GREEN SEA FLOYDS HIGH SCHOOL ALSO HAD SOME MINOR ROOF
DAMAGE, BROKEN WINDOWS, AND SEVERAL TREES DOWN.

A SMALL AREA OF MORE CONCENTRATED DAMAGE OCCURRED ALONG MOUNT
OLIVE CHURCH ROAD BETWEEN BILLY MC ROAD AND FAIRVIEW HIGHWAY. AT
THIS LOCATION A MOBILE HOME WAS COMPLETELY DESTROYED AND
SUBSTANTIALLY LARGER TREES WERE SNAPPED. SUCH DAMAGE INDICATORS
ARE SUGGESTIVE OF WIND SPEEDS RANGING FROM 95 TO 109 MPH. THE
MOBILE HOME DAMAGE IN ADDITION TO ALL FELLED TREES AND PEELED
ROOFS WERE UNIVERSALLY IN THE EXACT SAME DIRECTION...FROM THE
NORTH-NORTHWEST TO SOUTH-SOUTHEAST. THIS SUGGESTS NO EVIDENCE
OF ANY ROTATION AND THE DAMAGE HAS BEEN DETERMINED TO BE THE
RESULT OF AS STRAIGHT LINE WINDS. WIND SPEEDS UP TO 109 MPH ARE
COMPARABLE TO THOSE OF AN EF1 TORNADO.
