Just some of the video shot by a live storm chaser. There are a bunch of videos shot by the same guy on his channel. Best wishes for anyone in the path of this storm. I was supposed to fly to Charlotte, NC tomorrow, I'm not sure I will.
Yikes! - I didn't see any birds or fish flying by. This thing went from storm to hurricane pretty fast.

Moved here to South Carolina 12 years ago from Long Island NY. This is our first "Tropical Storm" I now know what a tropical storm is like. We live west of Columbia, pretty much where the center of the storm moved through.
Bottom line, a tropical storm is nothing different then a good old Long Island Noreaster or winter cold front, except its not tropical in nature. But heck, our lights did not even blink one time and we get more debris from trees and things from our summer thunder storms.
I feel for the people on the coast of Florida, horrible but ignore any hype of the storm in inland SC and NC.
I like storms but we did choose to move/live "inland" simply because we didnt want to deal with home damaging storms. Looks like we picked a good place :o)
That was a real monster alright, prayers for anyone unfortunate to be stuck in it.
I was in Mexico Beach, FL, about a year ago. It's just a small coastal town. Just saw the drone footage on TV and it looks like someone dropped a bomb there. Total destruction. I hoped everybody evacuated.
