Storm damages reported in North Carolina storm”

The weather service office in Greer, South Carolina, said Tuesday morning that one crew was working to confirm tornado damage in Spartanburg and Cherokee counties in South Carolina and Cleveland County in North Carolina, while a second crew was focusing on the rest of western North Carolina.

"As our county emergency managers survey their communities, we'll have a better idea of the extent and types of damage these storms caused", said state Emergency Manager Mike Sprayberry. Chimney Rock State Park was closed while crews dealt with damage that included a landslide.

Burke, Caldwell, Wilkes and Catawba counties declared local states of emergency due to the storms. Downed power lines and trees closed secondary roads in Alexander, Ashe, Caldwell, Catawba, Cleveland and Wilkes counties.

Sprayberry said once emergency managers have a clearer picture of the nature of the damages, they will be able to determine what, if any, state or federal aid may be available to help individuals and communities recover from these latest storms.

The National Weather Service is sending two crews to check on possible tornadoes in the western Carolinas.

The western part of North and SC was slammed by severe thunderstorms on Monday afternoon and evening.

A line of storms with as many as nine tornadoes raced across the Carolinas on Monday afternoon and evening.

In North Carolina, several stretches of the Blue Ridge Parkway were closed because of heavy rainfall. At Stone Mountain State Park in Alleghany and Wilkes counties, down trees prompted officials to close the park.
