Myrtle Beach tornado: 8th anniversary

July 6, 2001

It was eight years ago Monday when a storm spawned several tornadoes on the Grand Strand.

Take a look at this picture from that day.

The tornado went right over the Myrtle Beach Pavilion where NewsChannel 15's weather center was and moved further down the beach, damaging several hotels including the Bar Harbor which had to close for the rest of the season.

Damage estimates neared $10 million.
