Gov. Haley warns of cyber threat in power outage emails

State officials have learned of a cyber security threat involving emails about power outages. Gov. Nikki Haley said the issue, which she called a "cyber situation," apparently began overnight.
"People will start receiving emails and they will tell you they have updates on outages and if you want to know the update on outages, click here," she said. "Once you click there, they get into your computer."
Haley reminded residents if they do not the person sending an email, they should delete the email and not click any link.

Tornado Touch Down in NMB

A tornado that started out as an offshore water spout touched down in North Myrtle Beach between 18th Ave N and Ocean Blvd.

Preliminary: One house may have lost its roof, one with some damage to the roof, a couple of others some minor siding loss, and possibly a couple of light poles down. Some info coming in that it then lifted up and touched down again around 11th N but I have no public safety confirmation of that. No injuries reported as of yet.
