No Funnel Cloud, but Lots of Lightning

Luckily many in Eastern Carolina didn't see a funnel cloud with the severe weather that hit Sunday night, but what was everywhere was lightning.

A Doppler-indicated funnel cloud was said to have passed through the Pitt, Martin, and Washington County areas, but gusty winds certainly did. A lot of the lightning was up in the clouds, and didn't seem to strike the Earth. Martin and Pitt County officials said they hadn't had any calls of damage, while Washington County said they just had some trees down, and siding blown off some buildings. No injuries for the areas.
