On an afternoon when severe thunderstorm warnings and tornado watches swept across the state, one storm left some damage in its wake in Harnett County.

High winds ripped through the Anderson Creek mobile home park Friday afternoon, tearing a roof off of one trailer. The storm also toppled trees and ripped the skirting on several mobile homes.

The occupant of the home that lost its roof was not home when the storm passed through. Emergency crews found minor damage at a number of homes, but there were no reports of injuries
