A super bad cell just came thru the Bethlehem community of southern Alexander County about 1 hour ago.
I was positive that it was a tornado, but Brad Panovich on ch. 36 in Charlotte said it was an 85 mph straight-line wind.
It blew the shingles off my roof, tore the gutters off the back side of the house. It pulled up 20' hemlocks on my property line root ball and all. It tore out 2 crepe myrtles that were 15' tall and put them in the other side of my yard. Many large limbs down, i'll be days cleaning up.
Our weather alerts did not go off, it thundered twice and here it came. Hardest wind Ive ever seen. Couldnt get the dogs out of the kennel fast enough, it turned the dog houses over with them in the house. Finally was able to open a door and call them to me, still got a squirrel dog and a terrier up under the bed hiding.
It rained about 2" in 15 minutes.
That was a bad one sho nuff....
That's a rough deal.straight line winds can cause some serious damage and are sometime violent as tornados.

Sorry to hear about the damage to your property.

We had one 6 or 7 years ago in Greenville over to Washington that caused widespread damage. Even took down 60% of an entire forest.

Had a microburst or straight line winds knock a big oak onto our house last Oct 11 … wasn't fixed until late March. Hopefully all of the contractors aren't covered up so much in work that you can't get it fixed quickly.

Rather big storm in harnett yesterday. Not much wind but just shy of 2” of high quality h2o.
Major damage in Benson yesterday as those storms rolled through. Numerous homes damaged and dozens of trees down per the storm reports

Little area of low pressure riding up the SC coast, this could become semi to fully tropical and produce rough conditions along the coast and sounds and heavy rain in eastern NC overnight into tomorrow.....will make offshore rough for sure for you guys planning on heading offshore this weekend.....could even possible be a TD or weak TS, though the seas will be rough regardless.

Sorry, thought the youtube "close lightning strike" video was clean because for 4 minutes all bad words were bleeped, but then they weren't.

Pop up thunder boomer yesterday, late afternoon........not a bit of wind but plenty of lightning and thunder and right at 3" of rain at my place in about an hour before it finally drifted off to the east. It apparently contributed to a couple of major wrecks on I85/I40 that blocked the busy road in both directions a few miles south of me as well. Reports indicate up to 50 vehicles involved during a period of heavy rain. Fortunately no fatalities.

It's been fast or famine. I've been in the famine zone while everyone gets to feast
