05/06/09 155 W, 1 I - + 10 - 16 Storms

Our weather radio works, which we learned four times last night, with three tornado warnings and one flash flood alert. Good photos from the storms included these at WRAL, with some 320 posted so far. As the television station reports, at least a dozen homes were damaged and three minor injuries reported. The Antioch fire station in Johnston County also suffered some minor roof damage, we read last night. On the west side of the state, numerous water rescues were performed around Charlotte. Last night's storms trapped more than 50 people in cars and homes, reports this Charlotte Observer article.

What fires happened? New Hope had a working house fire at 5509 Castlebrook Drive at 7:50 p.m. Raleigh, Wendell, and Falls were also on scene. Numerous others were reported. And this morning, as WRAL reports, five departments fought a fire at a food mart in Zebulon Franklin County about 1:00 a.m. Unknown if storm-related.

Good one Scoot, made me laugh. Looked like you could have used a hole on the Horton Rd. job?
