A strong line of storms will move across eastern North Carolina this afternoon and may linger into the night, moving North-East as a long continuing system. These storms produced tornadoes, straight-line winds, hail and lightning yesterday as they came through Texas, Louisiana and Alabama.
The National Weather Service shows that these storms have weakened and are now rated as a slight risk to our area. Still, they may produce a few tornadoes, hail and winds in excess of 60 MPH in isolated locations. Up to one inch of rain is also possible in some areas.
If you see or hear the wind pick up please go to the lowest floor of the closest building and keep away from windows and doors. All NCWC locations have a safe shelter area indicated by a green and white sign “Severe Weather Shelter Area.”
Note: The safety of the NC Wesleyan University community is our highest priority.
