Storm brings heavy rain, but no major damage to NC
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — A storm system has brought a lot of rain but not too much severe weather to North Carolina.
But forecasters say there is still a chance of strong storms and even tornadoes Wednesday afternoon east of Interstate 95.
The same system that brought dozens of tornadoes to the Southeast on Christmas Day was moving across North Carolina, bringing mostly heavy rain and gusty winds. Charlotte had 1.70 inches of rain, while some trees were reported blown down in the Piedmont.
Transportation officials reported the heavy rain hadn't caused major problems on the state's roads. North Carolina Ferry officials warn the storms could disrupt service and asked travels to call ahead.
A tornado watch has been issued for most of the state east of I-95 until 5 p.m.
