(WGHP) — Heavy winds and rain crossed the Piedmont Triad Tuesday and into Wednesday morning, kicking up a tornado in Wilkes County and leaving behind a trail of damage.
Tornado Warnings were issued earlier in the day for Alleghany, Caswell, Patrick, Rockingham, Stokes, Surry, Wilkes and Yadkin counties. These warnings have since expired.
Erick Paylor, with the National Weather Service Forecast Office in Blacksburg, Virginia, said the NWS received one confirmed report of a tornado from Emergency Management in Wilkes County.
There was damage to a house on Clingman Road, one mile north-northwest of Ronda. Several trees were down.
No other damage has been reported.
There is a discussion underway on when an NWS team will go to Wilkes County for an assessment, Paylor said.
No injuries have been reported at this time.
