Early-morning storms cause isolated damage in southeastern N.C.
BRUNSWICK COUNTY, N.C. (WECT) - Heavy showers and locally lightning-rich storms visited southeastern North Carolina in the early hours of Monday, March 27.
At least one patch of damage - to trees and sheds and an overturned camper - was reported along Mintz Cemetery Road between Grissettown and Shallotte just after 4 a.m. Later Monday or Tuesday, the National Weather Service will likely survey this area to determine if a tornado caused this damage.
WECT’s meteorologists were busy tracking the system on social and broadcast platforms, especially when radar began to indicate a rogue area of rotation late in the 3 o’clock hour. The National Weather Service had a small swath of Brunswick County - between Grissettown and Holden Beach - under an official Tornado Warning for a brief time.
