High winds impacted much of southern South Carolina and southeast Gegorgia during the late evening hours of Monday, November 21, 2005 and the early morning hours of Tuesday, November 22, 2005 as a strong upper level storm system crossed the Carolinas and Georgia. Sustained winds of 25-35 mph with gusts to 40-55 mph were common, especially along the coast. Gusty winds in combination with wet soil caused scattered wind damage across mainly the coastal areas of south coastal South Carolina and north coastal Georgia. Most of the damage was confined to the area along and east of the Interstate 95 corridor and mainly consisted of downed trees and power lines.
