Episode Narrative The remnants of Hurricane Fay which made landfall along the Louisiana coast moved northeast across central North Carolina producing several weak tornadoes along with significant flash flooding.
Event Narrative A weak EF-1 tornado touched down to the northeast of Freemont in northern Wayne County. The tornado tracked north after touching down in the middle of a corn field just southeast of the intersection of Aycock Church Road and Old Black Creek Road. At 188 Aycock Church Road the tornado with winds estimated around 75 mph destroyed a barn and damaged a pick up truck. Minor roof and siding damage was also noticeable to the house at this same location. Debris from the barn and house were scattered about 100 yards. The tornado crossed the Aycock Church Road moving across a field of soy beans and damaging several trees. After striking the tree line the tornado then caused a roof to collapse on a second barn and damaged two fields of tobacco. The tornado then lifted off the ground before touching down again briefly near Beaver Dam road causing minor damage. Several mobile homes along Beaver Dam Road had shingles removed and several trees were blown down. A few small out buildings were also damaged.
