Three clusters of storms popped up in the areas during the 6 o'clock hour. The warning expired at 7:15 p.m.
The strongest storm moved along N.C. Highway 210 west of Anderson Creek. Heavy rain fell south and east of Fort Bragg, and a third storm system moved west to east over central Hoke County.
Residents of Harnett County reported hail as large as golf balls. Heavy winds and locally-heavy rainfall accompanied the storms, WRAL Chief Meteorologist Greg Fishel said.
Robert Heintzleman reported marble-sized hail falling in Flat Branch.
The isolated storms are expected to clear out quickly, Fishel said, leaving a clear, warm evening with light winds.
