SPARTANBURG COUNTY, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - Storms on Monday afternoon caused damage to multiple houses in an area of Spartanburg County.

Joseph Greenway says his daughter was inside her home on McSwain Road when the storm tore the roof. He tells Fox Carolina, that she was asleep when the storm started but immediately ran for cover in the living room. The only part of the home where the roof stayed intact.

“I just thank God that she wasn’t killed or something. Your whole life can change in an instant” said Greenway.

Greenways tells us his daughter is still shaken by what happened. She has no insurance and is staying with family for the time being.

The National Weather Service reported that a resident called 911 and informed them that a structure near Little Africa Road was damaged by hail at around 3:27 p.m.

Another resident nearby told us that her roof blew off during the storms. We spoke to them today about the situation.
