Incoming storm over Charleston

Ended up with an interesting event right in the heart of town today, as a burst of convection pulsed right over Charleston. Yeager Airport reported a wind gust of 84mph, and there was some intense, isolated tree damage on Coonskin Drive - including a trunk snapped off halfway up. Amazingly, I didn't lose power at the house, so the sky camera was able to capture the event (notice the wind shift after the passage of the cold front/squall line). Some ominous cloud structure with these storms, but not much lightning. More photos:
