Irmas wind and rain lash Kershaw County
Most damage appeared to be fallen trees
Cantey Parkway Tree Web
The crown of a large tree sits in the front yard of Barbara Downeys house on Cantey Parkway in Camden on Tuesday morning. Downeys neighbors, Tim and Dianne Rabon, said they heard and felt the tree fall around 3 p.m. Monday while Downey was working at KershawHealth. Its rotten in the middle; theres no center in this tree, Downey said of the tree, which missed hitting her front porch and dining room by inches. - photo by Martin L. Cahn
Even though it was hundreds of miles to the south and west, Hurricane Irma managed to leave a few marks on Kershaw County. Rain -- heavy at times -- and high winds moved into the county Monday, becoming fiercer during the late afternoon and into Monday night. Some rain and wind hung on Tuesday, but by late morning, the skies began to clear.
