Transcript for Hurricane Dorian brings tornadoes, waterspouts to Carolina coast
And of course hurricane Dorian pounding the east coast. It took days to get here and it's now slamming the U.S. Multiple reports of tornadoes touching down. The eye wall now just 45 miles from Myrtle Beach. It could make landfall in north Carolina's outer banks. Something we're watching into the night. The storm spawning those twisters. This one near Wilmington, north Carolina. Homes in Brunswick county ripped apart. Hundreds of thousands without power tonight. Winds lashing the shore, nearly 100 miles an hour and pushing the flood waters right into the streets of Charleston. The new threats as we headnto this evening and into tomorrow morning. We have the track here, and ABC's Steve osunsami leading us off from Charleston. Reporter: Hurricane Dorian is bringing tragedy to the Carolina coast, destroying their homes with or the nay dose and frightening them with waterspouts. Which way is it going? Reporter: Near Myrtle Beach, families who rode out the storm in Myrtle Beach had to run from the twisters just after sunrise. Someone drove this jeep up onto the beach, and the storm is taking it away, too. The high winds tore the siding off these apartment buildings. The people inside worried for their lives. All of a sudden the window broke loose. Everything was swirling in our bedroom. Reporter: This is what the storm left of this mobile home park in emerald isle, north Carolina. Amazingly, no one was hurt. The winds left hundreds of thousands of people without power when trees came down over power lines. Charleston was hit hard. We're seeing this all over town, trees that couldn't withstand these high winds came crashing sometimes over power lines. A giant tree came crashing this morning onto the bed of this 7-year-old boy. We were all sleeping downstairs as precaution for this reason, we do it during every storm. Reporter: Patrick Murray and his daughter Millie say it was a rough night. It was a hill scary in the middle of the night, it started to pick up and the shutters were banging. Reporter: Just down the street from our hotel is the reason we lost power, this dangerous power line dangling in flood waters -- lighting up the street. And Steve osunsami with us live tonight from Charleston. Steve, we can see that tree down there right behind you. This storm has knocked out power for hundreds.

Many times my size. It fell in the middle of the night, frightening homeowners here. It was brought down by the high winds. Wind gusts were between 60 and 70 miles an hour. And luckily, no one here was hurt. That scene says it all. Steve, thank you. Let's get right to chief meteorologist ginger zee. She's tracking it from Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, tonight. Ginger? Reporter: Gusty winds here, near 64 miles per hour. And we are starting to see Dorian pass us here at Myrtle Beach. It is racing up the coast now at 10 miles per hour to the northeast and a tornado watch has now been extended all the way to norle doing and Virginia Beach. That has been one of the major issues, as you mentioned. Those tornadoes coming with those ripping winds offshore. But watch as this track could take two landfalls in the next 12 hours, David. Watch that category 2 storm go out into the ocean, but it will stay have impacts, as far north as nantucket.
