A Friday storm which knocked over numerous trees, produced hail and created power outages throughout Columbia County, doesn't appear to have caused long-term effects.
"I'm not aware of prolonged outages," said Columbia County Emergency and Operations Director Pam Tucker Saturday morning. "I don't think we got hit as hard as Richmond County and Aiken County did."
For much of Friday, the county was under a tornado watch. The watch was expected to be in effect until 4 p.m., but ended an hour early.
