The crew was able to get the scene as quickly as they did because they were on their way back from a conference in Savannah when the storm system passed through.

An EF-1 tornado has winds that range between 86-110 mph, according to the Enhanced Fujita scale.

Laurens County EMA Director said other parts of the county had some downed trees and power lines, but otherwise no significant damage.
