Sophia residents spend Labor Day cleaning up storm damage
SOPHIA, N.C. — Sophia residents spent Labor Day Monday removing trees and waiting for the power to return after a line of powerful thunderstorms marched across Northern Randolph County Sunday night, crushing trees and sending power lines to the ground.
“It was a hot night, I can deal with that but I got 600 pounds of meat and I don’t want it to go bad,” said Adam Hill. “I got my generator hooked up to the deep freeze, but everything else is good”
Steven Lee said he had big plans for Labor Day Monday. Instead, he spent the day cutting tress under a hot September sun.
“My girlfriend… today is her birthday today and here i am cutting trees,” he said.
At least 700 people in Randolph County were without power at the height of the storm..
