HORRY COUNTY, S.C. (WMBF) - Multiple structures in the Conway area were damaged by a possible tornado on Sunday, according to officials.

Tony Casey with Horry County Fire Rescue said crews were called to the area of Oak Street at around 4:34 p.m. Casey added that one person suffered minor injuries and was treated on scene. Resident pets were also rescued by HCFR.

WMBF News viewer Summer Farrand also sent a video showing one building heavily damaged along Four Mile Road and Cultra Road.

The National Weather Service said it will be investigating reports of damage around that same area of Horry County.

“I heard the wind come up but I didn’t hear a rumble like a freight train,” said Virginia Tyler.

Tyler lives in a home off of Oak Street that was damaged by the storm. She was able to get to safety before the possible tornado forced its way through.

“I expected to see some damage to the roof and the windows but it was a lot worse than I thought,” said Tyler.

On Monday morning, the National Weather Service is sending crews out to Conway and Dillion to survey the damage.
