CHARLESTON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

SCE&G officials say the number of homes without power in Charleston County is down to two dozen, following a storm that brought a tornado warning for portions of Charleston and Dorchester counties Wednesday evening. 

Some locations in the warning included Shadowmoss and Magnolia Gardens. Pictures showed flooding and downed trees in West Ashley following the storm.

West Ashley resident Clinton Green arrived home to two down trees on his roof.

"I didn't expect to see two trees on top of my house. I know it was raining, torrential in the last hour or two."

At 6:30 p.m., the National Weather Service doppler radar detected a severe thunderstorm capable of producing a tornado near Shadowmoss.

Some locations that were affected included Charleston International Airport, Shadowmoss, West Ashley, Archdale, Magnolia Gardens and Middleton Place.

An earlier tornado warning for Johns Island and James Island also expired Wednesday evening. Motorists reported spotting a tornado formation off Maybank Highway.
