Craven County Emergency Management officials say they believe a tornado touched down in the Falcon Ridge area around 9:00 Saturday night.
Law enforcement is on the scene Sunday afternoon to keep onlookers from the area between New Bern and Havelock until they can assess the extent of the damage. Officials do report several homes damaged and at least three people were transported to the hospital with minor injuries.
