Devastation throughout Raleigh and other NC areas
22 people were killed and more than 130 injured by tornadoes/severe storms including flash floods and baseball-sized hail that hit at least 20 counties in North Carolina on Saturday. Raleigh was hit pretty hard in some areas, I had no idea it was so bad. We saw/heard the winds and rain pick up on Saturday, and hid in the stairwell until it was over, but didn't realize how close the threat actually was. My exit was still closed last night when I came home from Aimee's, and Kyle and I saw some torn up buildings off of Wake Forest Road yesterday, and forests of trees just snapped like toothpicks. 3 little boys were killed in a motor home in Raleigh, just so horrible. Please pray for all of the families that lost loved ones, and will have to start their lives all over from scratch.
