Tornado sightings near Roseland, Cerro Gordo and Lake Waccamaw poured into the Columbus County 911 Center Monday evening, with at least one fallen tree blocking Pleasant Plains Church Road. There was confirmation of a tornado touchdown, and the photo below taken by Fleet Connect employee Matt Hotten and provided by Columbus County Emergency Services Director Kay Worley seems to show a funnel cloud that remained above the treetops. It’s less clear if the video, taken from U.S. 701 near Vinegar Hill by Anne Spivey, shows a twister that reached ground.
