CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- Beryl barreled through the Lowcountry early Wednesday, bringing strong winds and dumping heavy rain across the area.
Because of the now downgraded tropical depression, many will be waking up to downed trees, debris in the roadways and no power.
Some residents also spent part of the morning looking to the skies for possible tornadoes as a warning was issued in Orangeburg County. That warning has since expired.
As of 3 a.m. Wednesday, there were reports of more than 1,000 power outages across the Lowcountry.
A little before 12:30 a.m. Wednesday, a resident on Torgerson Avenue in North Charleston said she heard a loud boom outside her mom's house then a car alarm going off. When they went outside to survey the damage they found fallen tree limbs on two cars, one a sports car, the other an SUV. Thankfully there were no injuries reported in that incident. The house didn't have any noticeable damage, and our crew on the scene was told the power never went out.
