Some of those storms rolling through Beaufort County left quite a mess on the roadways Friday.

With chainsaws buzzing, crew members worked on removing a tree officials say toppled over power lines in the middle of River Road near Broad Creek and Yacht Club Cove Roads just outside of Washington.

Emergency Management Director for Beaufort County, John Pack, says the storm caused numerous homes to be damaged in the area.

Pack says, despite all the damage, no injuries were reported.

    Yacht Club Cove has a lot to be thankful for today. We had some minor damage but nothing compared to what it could have been.

    My mother said it was the worst storm that she has seen in the area in about 2 years.

    I was on Swan Point road last night and it was like a small tornando went through there. At about 5:00 I was driving on 17 and it was like walls of water it was so bad I had to pull off the road.

    I am in Yacht Club Cove and I was scared to death last night. I am so thankful that I stayed home from the beach this weekend to keep our animals safe and indoors. We have a lot of limbs and our wooden flag pole broke off of our porch, but that's all in the front yard. The back fence took a beating and will need to be repaired/replaced in a few places, but at least we are safe. I am so thankful for the power crew(s) last night. I figured by about 12am that there had been a tree down because I heard the crew working on things on river road.

    Yacht Club Cove has extensive damage. The power returned on at 4 a.m. A porch was blown off of one house, multiple trees down, fences blown over, and shingles and siding lost. We have a lot to be thankful for this morning.
