Raleigh, N.C. — Harsh thunderstorms and weather conditions have moved out of the Triangle into the southeastern part of the state.
Damage was reported in Harnett County, where crews were assessing property damage in the area of Kipling Road, north of Lillington, after straight-line winds downed several trees.
Harnett County will continue to experience severe weather conditions, with quarter-sized hail.
By the coast in Cape Carteret, a funnel cloud developed near Emerald Isle Bridge along with reports of wind damage.
In Wake Forest, one person was injured in the 900 block of Golden Star Way when storms caused a tree to fall. The extent of that person's injuries were unknown.
Showers will continue overnight and through Tuesday, when the cold front keeps temperatures in the 70s all day.
“Quieter weathers ahead for the day tomorrow and also cooler weather as well,” Maze said.
Temperatures will climb back into the 90s by Wednesday and will stay in the 80s for the weekend.
