Deadly storm system brings scattered rain, hail to Midlands

kdavis@thestate.comApril 12, 2013 



— A weather system that spawned deadly tornadoes in some parts of the Southeast was nearly a non-event in the Midlands of South Carolina.

Trace amounts to less than half an inch of rain at the official gauge at the Columbia Metropolitan Airport, although heavier rain fell in scattered areas.

The National Weather Service received reports of quarter-size hail Thursday evening in Newberry and Pelion, and the SC Highway Patrol reported trees down near Salley.

Neither Santee Cooper nor SCE&G were reporting significant outages in their services areas Friday morning.

If weather affected you in an important way Thursday and overnight, email us.
