Security camera footage captured the moment an EF-1 tornado ripped through the parking lot of this South Carolina high school and destroyed cars – sending them flying across the lot and flinging debris everywhere.
Just two days before and a stronger EF-2 tornado utterly destroyed a high school campus just over 100 miles away.
On January 11th, 2020, the stronger of the two struck North Central High School in Kershaw County, South Carolina with wind speeds reaching 130 miles-per-hour.
WLTX 19 CBS News reports that the tornado touched down at one end of the school campus and lifted after reaching the other side. Fortunately, the tornado occurred when nobody was at the campus on a Saturday night.
Another powerful twister touched down on Monday, January 13th, 2020 just over 100 miles away at Loris High School in Loris, South Carolina.
Captured by security cameras, you can clearly see the tornado sweep through the parking lot and lift multiple cars with ease – throwing them around like rags. The tornado touched down at the school’s football field and moved through the parking lot before continuing on for another mile. A nearby barn lost its roof to the tornado and many trees were damaged.
Luckily nobody was hurt in this tornado either. Watch the full news clip below.
