 Brief Description: As a weak cold front moved south into an afternoon sea breeze boundary, slow-moving thunderstorms developed along the Horry county coast. An F0 tornado briefly touched down at 9th Ave N near the Myrtle Beach Pavilion, and soon after a waterspout formed just off the beach near 3rd Ave N. It slightly damaged the 2nd Ave N pier and then moved over the beach as it developed more strongly, causing F2 damage - overturned buses and extensive damage to vehicles and hotels along the beach to about 4nd Ave S. Moving off the beach again, the waterspout continued south about 100 yards from the shore until it came ashore between 28th Ave S and Springmaid Pier...causing a 66 knot gust over water at the Springmaid Pier anemometer. As it moved through the Seagate RV park, it did F1 damage - destroyed 10 RVs and damaged 40 more. Weakening further, the tornado crossed US Hwy Business 17 onto Myrtle Beach International Airport, doing F0 damage to trees and structures.

 Brief Description: EVENT NARRATIVE: A National Weather Service Storm Survey concluded a tornado first touched down approximately 200 yards south of Dogwood Lakes Road at 1250 AM EST. Large pine trees were snapped and a mobile home rolled about 20 yards before completely disintegrating. It is unknown how well the mobile home was attached to its foundation. A truck was flipped in a church parking lot on Goings Drive. No injuries were reported. The damage was indicative of winds of 110 to 120 mph, EF-2 on the Enhanced Fujita Scale. The path width was approximately 40 yards. The tornado touched down for a second time resulting in near total roof failure and some damage to the exterior walls of a brick home on Pee Dee Church Road near Andre Drive. No injuries were reported. Lesser tree damage and minor structural damage was noted from this point to the north-northeast for one half to three quarters of a mile as the tornado weakened and/or slightly lifted from the ground. Damage then became more significant as the tornado struck another brick home on the corner of Cornelius Place and Dillon Highway. Total roof failure and minor failure of exterior walls was evident. No injuries were reported. The damage was indicative of winds of 110 to 120 mph, EF-2 on the Enhanced Fujita Scale. The tornado then continued north-northeast through a large wooded area. Given the extent of tree damage, winds were estimated to 100 mph. The tornado then intensified as it hit a brick home on Appleton Court. Total roof damage and more significant failure of the external walls was evident. The three occupants were not injured. The damage was indicative of winds of 120 to 135 mph, the high end of EF-2 on the Enhanced Fujita Scale. The path width was about 30 yards. The tornado completely dissipated about 200 yards north of Appleton Court at 1253 AM EST. The Emergency Manager from Dillon County reported ten homes were damaged and two others were destroyed. Seven mobile homes were damaged and three others were destroyed. Three churches were damaged. Five barns were damaged and two others were destroyed. Three cars were damaged and three others were destroyed. The total damage was estimated at $325,000 dollars. EPISODE NARRATIVE: A mid-level short wave lifted to the northeast and slowly weakened with time. A warm front, lifting to the northwest, moved across the area during the evening. High wind shear and deep moisture was in place as upstream supercell thunderstorms reached the Interstate-95 corridor around midnight.
