CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - A severe thunderstorm watch for the Lowcountry has been canceled.

The watch affected Allendale, Beaufort, Berkeley, Charleston, Colleton, Dorchester, Hampton and Jasper counties.

Earlier on Tuesday, much of the Lowcountry was under a tornado watch.

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal had declared a state of emergency on Monday as severe weather moved across the state, downing trees and power lines. A tornado reportedly touched down near Bawcomville in Ouachita Parish.

An Alabama woman was killed when a tree fell into her home in Dora, Ala. Several cars were damaged when a carport roof at a used car lot collapsed in Decatur. In Tuscumbia, firefighters say an elderly couple is lucky to have survived after an oak tree fell on their home, trapping them in their sunroom. And in Colbert County, state Department of Transportation officials spent hours trying to rebuild the heavily damaged traffic light grid.

Residents of Middle Tennessee and Southern Kentucky also faced several tornado and severe thunderstorm warnings, with at least one tornado confirmed in Perry County, Tenn.
