As more rain continued to move across the western Carolinas and northeast Georgia on Tuesday, some Upstate residents received a little more than rain.

The storm damage was reported along Monitor Drive and Kingsboro Road near the 28 Bypass in Anderson.

FOX Carolina Meteorologist Alex Wilson said the National Weather Service reported a patch of 50 mph winds around the same time in that area.

Many Upstate residents have received a soaking since early Monday when the storms began moving in.

The National Weather Service issued a flash flood warning for Anderson County until 9 a.m. with the chance for more than 2 inches of rainfall possible in the central part of the county.

According to a Weather Service report at about 6 a.m., law enforcement reported flooding in some parts of the city of Anderson, particularly near Highway 81.

Greenville, Pickens, Henderson and Transylvania counties were also under flash flood warnings until 9:30 a.m.

A tornado warning was issued for Cherokee County until 10 a.m. as storms continued to move through the Gaffney area. The National Weather Service urged residents to seek shelter and wait out the storm.

FOX Carolina meteorologists warned for the potential of high winds as the severe storm moved northeast along Interstate 85. Officials in Cherokee and Cleveland counties did not report any signs of a funnel cloud or tornado in the area.
