North Carolina Coastal Community Looks Ahead After Tornado Destroys Homes

 Monday, September 9, 2019


A confirmed EF-2 tornado left at least three homes a total loss in Carolina Shores early Thursday Morning. The storm traveled four miles at about 120 mph and ripped apart the communities in its path.

“It’s not something you expect here,” said homeowner Alan Lehman. “We’re used to hurricanes, floods, high tides things like that but not tornadoes, no.”

There is a stretch of about six homes in The Farm community in Brunswick County that seem to have received the most damage, but the tornado cleared a path that left backyards battered, windows blown out and multiple families without a home to call their own.
