National Weather Service to Evaluate Possible Tornado Damage in Stokes Co.

STOKES COUNTY, NC (WGHP) - The National Weather Service will visit Flat Shoals in the Quaker Gap Community on Wednesday to determine if a tornado touched down late Tuesday night.

Officials in Stokes County are evaluating storm damage after storms pushed through the area late Tuesday night. The storms damaged 14 structures in Stokes County, including 3 homes.

Officials said there were trees on vehicles along Flat Shoals Road and a car port collapsed late Tuesday night. Stokes County Fire Marshal Frankie Burcham said pieces from the car port were found in a nearby tree, giving him reason to believe a tornado may have touched down.
