A Terrifying, Deadly Storm Struck South Carolina In 1984… And No One Saw It Coming

On the afternoon of March 28, 1984, deadly tornados moved into western South Carolina. A tornado “watch” had been issued after tornadic activity was spotted in a storm that was moving through Georgia and heading toward South Carolina. Two tornados had touched down in Georgia in the period of an hour and five minutes; one of them was very brief and lasted seconds, the other injured one person. The damages to life, lives and property in South Carolina were devastating.

Do you remember this massive tragic storm? We’d love to hear in our comments on Facebook.
