Police cars used a hill with a good vantage point to watch the storm roll into Anderson County.

The tornado sirens first sounded around 12:45pm signaling for those in the storm's path to take cover.

Within five minutes the sky grew dark and sheets of rain dropped the visibility, bringing traffic to a standstill.

The people we spoke with say they could notice a significant change in temperature as the storm passed through.

State Farm agent, Stan Simmons says, "The temperature was about 82 degrees for about 10 minutes or so, now it's 60 degrees."

Simmons says he was concerned at first, his office is on a hill with no good place to shelter during a storm.

But thankfully for Simmons the dangerous part of the storm had passed through quickly, and according to police there were no reports of any injuries due to the weather.
