      CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- Beryl barreled through the Lowcountry early Wednesday, bringing strong winds and dumping heavy rain across the area.{}

      Because of the now downgraded tropical depression, many will be waking up to downed trees, debris in the roadways and no power.{}

      Some residents also spent part of the morning looking to the skies for possible tornadoes as a warning was issued in Orangeburg County. That warning has since expired.

      As of 3 a.m. Wednesday, there were reports of more than 1,000 power outages across the Lowcountry.

      A little before 12:30 a.m.{}Wednesday,{}a resident on Torgerson Avenue in North Charleston{}said she heard a loud boom outside her mom's house then a car alarm going off.{} When they went outside to survey the damage they found fallen tree limbs on two cars, one a sports car, the other an SUV.{}{}Thankfully there were no injuries reported in that incident.{} The house didn't have any noticeable damage,{}and our crew on the scene was told the power never went out.
