Swainsboro, Ga. — A tenth tornado hit the Central Savannah River Area on Saturday.

Savannah media outlets reported on Wednesday that a confirmed tornado hit Emanuel County early Saturday afternoon, though they did not specify where in the county the twister hit.

On Tuesday, nine tornados were confirmed after local Emergency Management surveyors viewed the aftermath of Saturday’s storms. No tornados hit the area Sunday, despite a Particularly Dangerous Situation Tornado Watch.

Three tornados hit Orangeburg County on Saturday. Two more hit Bamberg and Screven counties, and one each hit Barnwell and Burke counties. A Blackville woman, identified as Joan Fail by the (Barnwell) People-Sentinel, was injured in the twister. She was released from the Regional Medical Center in Orangeburg earlier this week.
