AFD:

.NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/...
As of 945 PM Monday...

A couple of very strong cells are crossing the Sandhills, within an 
environment of somewhat low LCLs and around 50 kts of deep layer 
shear, but weak low-level shear and marginal instability. These 
cells have exhibited deep broad rotation, but the weak and 
unfavorable low level wind field, and the lack of a focus/boundary 
to concentrate any low level vorticity, do not appear to 
support any significant spinup at the surface. While strong wind 
gusts remain possible, hail development will continue to be limited 
by poor mid level lapse rates. Will continue to monitor these cells 
as they move into a better CAPE environment with sufficient 
effective shear.

Based on a storm survey conducted today in northern Sampson County, straight-line winds last night were responsible for a broad, five-mile-wide swath of damage extending from north of Salemburg eastward to the Duplin County line. Winds were estimated to be in excess of 70 mph throughout this damage path, with localized areas of 80-90 mph. Hundreds of trees were downed, along with several structures damaged or destroyed.

I saw the wall cloud leaving work, I almost went after it but its been a long day so I headed home, I regret that decision now. 

Where was it at? I'm currently in Raleigh but my dad works in the Industrial park on Sugg Parkway and he doesn't carry his phone on him so I can't get in touch with him.

Up along Hwy 30/64 between Bethel and Stokes so it was 5-8 miles north of of that area as the crow flies......my work is about a mile from where your dad works the tornado, though my brother who I work with and is currently at work just filmed a gustnado right over by your dads work lol.....

Looks like it came from a supercell. Any radar capture? I think I remember good cells on NC radar Monday afternoon but I did not follow closely. LLJ was pretty veered off, but perhaps not as much so that far east. Nice!

Here is a radar capture I took shortly after it went under a warning and the tornado was reported.
