State Of Emergency Declared After Tornado Rips Through Small Town North Carolina

Just when we were starting to get excited for summer sunshine, Mother Nature so harshly reminded us that North Carolina’s weather likes to keep us on our toes. This week the eastern half of our state has seen nothing but catastrophic storms and we even had several tornadoes roll through some of our most beloved small towns. Here’s what we know about the storms that touched down in our state over the last several days.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
