A round of severe storms rolled through the Lowcountry Tuesday night knocking down a number of trees in the area. Powers outages were also reported for many people during the storm.
Trees were reported down in areas from Beaufort to Walterboro to Summerville to Mount Pleasant. Part of the reason for the high number of trees down is because the ground is very saturated due to all the recent rain making it easier for the trees to be knocked down. We also had winds over 60 and even 70 mph is some areas with the storms.
Power outages were also reported all across the Lowcountry during the storms. SCE&G worked quickly to restore electricity.
