The American Freight Furniture store on Albright Road faced shattered windows, while nearby businesses reported roof damages.

Alongside the hail, the storm brought strong winds and heavy rainfall, compounding the destructive impact. Over 2,000 customers were left without power as hundreds of trees were toppled by the forceful winds. One of the most severe incidents involved a fallen tree completely demolishing a multi-level residential home in Rock Hill.

Despite the extensive destruction witnessed, there have been no reports of injuries thus far. However, the community is grappling with the aftermath as they assess the full extent of the damage and work towards recovery efforts. The resilience and unity of York County residents are being tested as they come together to support those affected and rebuild what was lost in this tumultuous storm.
