OK, I feel guilty having had a great day of sailing here when severe storms are happening in the SE. A friend from Atlanta was on the boat today - we all spent the day worrying about his girlfriend, who stayed home in ATL. When is the severe weather going to move out of there?

I took a screenshot of the most AMAZING hook echo I've ever seen from the Columbia, SC NWS radar. I wonder how big the tornado in this was?
