The National Weather Service confirms a tornado struck in northern Arkansas.

Meteorologists with the Cleveland weather forecasting office found the weak EF-1 tornado with 90-mph winds "produced damage to signs and a light pole at a Burger King on Manchester Road in Coventry Township". It also did minor damage to a church, to a garage and outbuildings.

The only Lowcountry county under a tornado watch until 11 p.m. was Williamsburg County.

The Charlotte area is under a tornado watch and a flash flood watch Sunday, and heavy rain is expected as a cold front sweeps the region, according to the weather service.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.

Early Monday, winds will get up to 25 miles per hour.

"Tornados can develop quickly from severe thunderstorms", The National Weather Service said.

Wind was also an issue and many areas are dealing with flooding in the storm's aftermath.

On radar, meteorologists can only see if there's rotation, not how far the funnel is to the ground, which makes false warnings an easy mistake. There have been no reports of tornado touch downs or damage.
