DAVIE COUNTY, N.C. — Strong winds, rain and hail ripped through Davie County Tuesday afternoon causing downed trees in many areas.

Some trees were uprooted, others cracked and split in half.

One tree landed on Jacqueline McRae’s home on FM Steele Road in Jerusalem Township.

The tree crashed into her living room and bedroom.

Luckily she wasn’t home and no one was hurt.

“I’m just glad I wasn’t laying in that bed,” she said. “All I see is limbs and leaves and everything. I was in shock.”

Downed trees also blocked roads like U.S. 601, shutting down traffic in both lanes for hours.

Trees also landed on power lines, knocking out power to at least 300 people after the storm first hit around 5 p.m.

Jerry Myers with Davie County Emergency Services says they have no reported injuries caused by the storm.
