          The Raleigh Tornado just lifted off the ground, finally. There are two others they are watching.

            They are reporting the the Raleigh cell is still kicking up debris, so they think it's either still on or back on the ground.

              They've tracked this for 96 miles, so far. There is another one behind it that they are watching.

                Now calling this "historic". It's headed NE, still.

                  No reports on the ground ATM, but still showing rotation, headed for Mount Olive. It's going right up the I-95 corridor.

                      Just went through the small town of Kinly - direct hit, apparently it's either still on the ground or skipping up that corridor.

                      Woman at Lowe's in Sanford probably saved lives, she saw it coming, ran through the store yelling Tornado and sending everyone to the bathrooms. Store was wiped out. She reports only minor injuries.

                      This thing is fugly.

                        Still going. They've got a helo up over Raleigh, some pretty bad damage. No reported deaths as yet (thank You, Lord!). Newscaster just said that this dwarfs the last two "real" storms they had.

                          Okay. Looks like the main cell has weakened a bit at the Virgina border. No longer showing rotation. They still have tornado watches in effect because this line of cells is so unstable.

                          It lasted almost 2 hours, never heard of such a thing! Newscasters are saying last "bad" storm like this was in 1984, but believe this one will prove worse.

                          North Carolina, God watch over you through this night. Hope all our friends are safe!

                            Still here In Asheboro it was a little ruff to the north in Greensboro and to the west Raleigh. It looked like it was night. Sky was just BLACK here.
