Episode Narrative The remnants of Tropical Storm Fay stalled just west of the Appalachians and slowly dissipated. A line of mini-supercells developed southeast of the low, resulting in several tornadoes over the Upstate and Northwest Piedmont of South Carolina during the afternoon hours of the 26th. A small amount of flash flooding also occurred, though the flooding was much worse in North Carolina.
Event Narrative The tornado touched down in rural, southern Greenville County. As it crossed Davis and Richey Roads, about 5 miles east of Pelzer, it destroyed a garage, removed shingles from roofs and uprooted large trees. The tornado continued north into Moonville where it blew down more trees. It then lifted about nine miles south of Greenville.
