NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - A tornado that started out as an offshore water spout touched down in North Myrtle Beach between 18th Ave N and Ocean Blvd., according to city spokesman Pat Dowling.

Preliminary reports indicate that one house may have lost its roof, one house has some damage to the roof, a couple of other houses have some minor siding loss, and there are possibly a couple of light poles down, Dowling stated in a news release.

There is some indication that it then lifted up and touched down again around 11th Ave. North, but Dowling has not confirmed that at this time.

No injuries were reported as of yet, Dowling said.
