WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Parts of the Piedmont Triad are cleaning up after high winds and heavy downpours plowed into neighborhoods Friday afternoon.
It didn’t take long for Elliott Thompson to realize his home in Winston-Salem was hit by a huge tree.
"I heard a loud noise and gust of wind came through the side and I jumped out of the car and ran in the house,” he said. "As soon as I got in that back door it was over."
No injuries were reported.
