Lightning kills man in South Carolina storm that spawned tornadoes, hail

A severe storm Tuesday night in South Carolina spawned at least two tornadoes and killed a man getting out of his car with a lightning strike. Sirmorio Davis, 32, was struck by lightning in a Chester neighborhood and died a short time later at the hospital, the Chester County Coroner’s Office said. Several severe storms moved across the northern part of the state Tuesday evening. The strongest storm spawned an EF-2 tornado with winds estimated at 115 mph (185 kph) that moved from Great Falls into western Lancaster County, the National Weather Service said. Earlier, that storm dropped an EF-1 tornado with winds of 100 mph (160 kph) south of Chester, forecasters said.
