Episode Narrative Central North Carolina endured a one-two punch of severe weather as a well developed upper low and negatively tilted upper trough moved across the region. The first round of severe storms began in the afternoon as discrete storms developed well ahead of an organized squall line. Minor wind damage was reported, along with an isolated tornado. The second round of severe storms came later that evening, as the squall line swept through the state, producing widespread wind damage and another brief tornado touchdown.
Event Narrative Trees fell through a home in Sanford. There was also numerous trees blown down across the city.
