Severe Weather Causes Problems All Over The Charlotte Area

In Catawba County, Tornado Warnings forced people to hunker down.

“When it blew over they finally let us out, but when we got out it was pouring the rain. It was just pouring the rain. Wind was blowing like it is now.”, said Jamie Harvey-Newton.

60 mile-an-hour plus winds were reported, knocking down trees and power lines.

In Mount Holly, Alecia Huntsinger came home to find a tree in her kitchen.

“Well, I’m just devastated to see this happen to my house after me and my son have lived here for the last twenty years. I guess the high winds brought this big huge tree that I had always had a fear of falling on my house. It actually has happened.” she said.

Problems persisting well after the storm moved out.

In East Charlotte Angela Glenn had just came home from work to settle in for bed, when she heard a loud boom.

“I thought a car had hit my house, but somebody hollered out ‘No it’s a tree!’ So I runs outside after I put my night clothes on. I ran outside to see if my kids and my grandkids were hurt or if anybody got hurt. But thank God nobody got hurt.” she said.
