posted by Gary Barboza - 

(Columbia, SC)  --  Damage in the Midlands is being blamed on more than just a typical storm.  

The National Weather Service confirmed last night that two tornadoes touched down yesterday afternoon within two minutes of each other.  

The first tornado was an EF-Zero that touched down in Lexington, while the second was an EF-One in Irmo.  

The storms caused damage to more than a dozen homes in the area, and left more than 80 thousand residents without power across the state.
