A Severe Thunderstorm Watch continues until 10 p.m. ET, (9 CT) for much of Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina.

A Severe Thunderstorm Watch means conditions are increasingly favorable for damaging thunderstorms during Sunday afternoon and early evening.


Specifically, a severe thunderstorm produces winds in excess of 58 miles per hour and/or hail at least the size of quarters (one inch in diameter). Typically, tree damage and power outages occur in severe thunderstorms.

If a Severe Thunderstorm Warning is issued, stay inside and away from windows until the Warning expires. Most Severe Thunderstorm Warnings last 30-45 minutes.

Especially dangerous or damaging severe thunderstorms may come with additional specific wording in their Warning:

  • Considerable: Winds 70+ mph and/or golf-ball size hail
  • Destructive: Winds 80+ mph and/or baseball-size hail

If a Wireless Emergency Alert (WEA) is activated on your phone (white screen, black text), it indicates the Destructive criteria.

Meteorologist Sean Sublette explains the difference between a regular severe thunderstorm warning and ones that are more urgent.

Although the Watch does not include Florence, an additional Watch may come later this evening. Additionally, storms can and do develop outside of the immediate area of the Watch.

Meteorologist Sean Sublette explains why microburst damage might look like tornado damage — at first glance.

On occasion, a tornado can form within a severe thunderstorm, and if that happens, a Tornado Warning will be issued. In that case, a basement is the best shelter option. However, if one is not available, go to an interior room on the lowest floor of whatever building you are in. Put as many walls between you and outside as possible and stay away from windows.
