DUPLIN COUNTY, NC -- Two tornadoes were reported in Duplin County just after 3:30 p.m. Tuesday.

County emergency management says one tornado destroyed turkey houses at a farm on Revelle Road, that's northeast of Warsaw.

Scraps of metal and piles of wood are all that's left of the two turkey houses.

People on the scene estimate the turkey houses cost about $150,000 each to rebuild.

Fortunately, the houses were empty as the turkeys had just been sold. No one was injured.
