Aerial footage in Seneca shows a house completely obliterated a few 100 yards north of the borg plant that was destroyed.  That house looked like ef4 damage to me. Even looked like possible ground scouring in the footage. Around the house. I’ll see if I can find a pic.

The cars that were pushed into the basement may have been a factor in the collapse. Could be EF4 but NWS will definitely consider whether those cars contributed to the collapse.

Yea, probably more likely ef3 in the worst spots now that a watched the whole video.   Looks like it was well over 500 yards wide at one point  judging by the leveled forests.

All in all, central NC fared better than I expected.  Looks like the more extreme dynamics were to the south and the timing of the day also helped tremendously.

Tornado just missed my house by like a mile or two here in Jacksonville.

 

 

Local friends are saying Hwy 53 is closed - may have hit SW High School.

Semantics (I know) but this was/is a major tornado outbreak. Probably could have warranted a high risk for some areas. Numerous tornadoes and some strong long track ones as well. Unfortunately it seems there was also a substantial loss of life. Great discussion on this board. Thanks to all the posters here keeping us abreast of the numerous storms with multiple tornadoes occurring at once several times. Wild 24 hour ride and pretty incredible for such a high end tornado event to occur at night.
