Severe thunderstorm warnings were issued before 11 p.m. on Monday for Greenville, Laurens and Spartanburg Counties.  The warning is set to expire at 11:15 p.m.

No tornado was confirmed to have touched down, but reports of a funnel cloud were being reported, according to Wood.

There are reports of down trees in Toccoa, according to Wood.
