Storm reports are coming into the WITN Newsroom as the storms move across Eastern Carolina.

An elderly woman was injured when high winds damaged her Duplin County home.

It happened around 2:00 p.m. on Kitt Noecker Road, southwest of Pink Hill. First responders say a metal carport was blown off a home, and the debris hit a van. A 16-year-old boy in the van was not hurt.

The debris continued on and struck a double-wide trailer, ending up on the roof of the home. An elderly couple was inside at the time. When the debris hit, the force knocked over a armoire inside, striking the woman. She was not severely injured, but taken to the hospital as a precaution.
