Severe Storms Wreak Havoc Across South



    (NECN/CNN) - A major storm system has been spawning some very powerful tornadoes as it heads north. Central and eastern North Carolina have been hit hard all day, and several buildings were destroyed. There is no yet word on any injuries.

    A Lowe's Home Improvement store in Sanford, North Carolina was demolished by a tornado that passed through Lee County. Employees told WRAL-TV they saw a "wall of churning debris and wind" and and that they herded customers to the back of the store. Despite the damage, witnesses say no one was seriously hurt.

    Deadly storms have claimed at least 25 lives in two days, ravaging their way through the South early Saturday. Reports of more than 100 possible tornado touch downs are the cause of severe damage and destruction, as Alabama, Mississippi and Oklahoma have declared States of Emergency.
