Jeanne - Supplemental Report


The center of Tropical Storm Jeanne tracked across inland Georgia but the strongest winds at the time were along the coast. Maximum wind gusts were 41 mph at Charleston downtown and the Charleston airport. The C-Man station at Folly Beach recorded a maximum wind gust of 38 mph. Non-tornadic wind damage was limited to a few trees falling on cars. There were F1 tornados in six different counties, Marion, Cherokee, Newberry, Clarendon, Florence, Georgetown. An F2 tornado destroyed 5 mobile homes, did moderate to severe damage to 2 framed homes and injured 13 people. One 57 year old male died.

As the intense tropical rain band associated with the remnants of Jeanne continued to progress north and east across the Upstate, flash flooding followed. Numerous streams rose quickly to flood, including Brushy Creek and the Enoree River around Greer and Taylors. Numerous people required rescue from their automobiles in this area. The Reedy River also flooded from Berea to downtown Greenville. In Spartanburg County, a bridge was washed out on Apple Valley Road in the Berry Shoals area. Portions of South Blackstock Road and Reidville Road were flooded, as was Highway 101 north of Woodruff.
