    ALAMANCE COUNTY, N.C. — Rows of tobacco plants line Blanchard Road in Northeast Alamance County. The rows in perfect spacing — but the plants in them — broken off and withered up. Countless hours and countless dollars — gone. When Elizabeth Cobb heard the storm from her home,  she knew it’d be bad. “As old as I am, I’ve never seen such a storm as we had yesterday,” the 82-year-old said. The tobacco farm surrounding Cobb’s home, which is now […]

    Northeast Alamance County hit hard by storm

    ALAMANCE COUNTY, N.C. — The northeastern part of Alamance County was hit hard by a storm Wednesday night. The storm knocked down dozens and dozens of trees. A tree fell on a car with someone inside. One farmer’s crops also took a hit. Emergency officials say they received 20-25 calls about damage. No one was injured. Looks like this house was barely spared by a few big trees that fell in their yard. #AlamanceCo @myfox8 pic.twitter.com/QDupgkqIeJ — Sarah Krueger (@SarahKruegerTV) June […]
