Tens of thousands of homes/businesses without power on Duke Energy in NC. And this was before the line started restrengthening. Esp. Henderson County, NC looks hard hit.

Well, the storm came and went. Actually weakened again in the southern areas of the line thankfully. Hopefully it isn't too bad northeast of here, there's still an area that looks nasty.

Had prolly 40-45 mph wind gusts at max, very tropical feel with smaller raindrops but lots of them and wind vs big raindrops, must be from the intense LLvL jet

Holy heck! Just been BLASTED for a good while. Finally, slowing down here. I’m sure @MichaelJ can attest as he’s closest proximity to me. Appreciate the hard work and professionalism from NWS Raleigh. However, missed the mark on this one. Good thing I read GSP and RNK, VA discussion so this came as no surprise. NOT Dissing NWS Raleigh as this is a very dynamic system.

Tornado Warning for Cumberland and Hoke county in North Carolina. Downtown Fayetteville is included in the warning.View attachment 30432
Still about an hour or two west of me but the line is maintaining and none of the hi-res models really show this still being this strong. Not sure what to expect as this tornado warned section will be what gets my area.

Tornado warned section should stay south of me but I should catch the northern end of the storms going through goldsboro. Wish they would hurry up. Tired and now I have an awake 4yr old because of the alarms that came over our phones.

Storms moving a little north of east and I'm the little blue dot over by greenville. Pretty sure theres no ground truth to the tornado warning but I may catch enough of this storm to get some strong winds.

Luckily they have weakened and no new warnings as this line approaches me. Should catch the brunt of whatever it is these are packing. Just heard thunder where they had no lightning earlier so maybe a new pulse up in intensity.

Line came together nicely as it hit. Lots of roaring wind just aloft but nothing too horrible at the ground. Gonna guess 35 to 40 at the surface but man the noise had me convinced we were gonna get nailed

This is the remnants of the previously tornado warned storm and it is way more violent than the first storm. Much stronger winds.
