Another Death From November Storm

Another person injured during the violent November storm system that swept through our state has died. The 62-year-old man from Statesville, not far from Winston-Salem, was hurt when a tornado struck his home and a refrigerator fell on him November 15. He died at a hospital Sunday. On November 16, that same storm system pushed through the tiny town of Riegelwood, about 20 miles northwest of Wilmington. A tornado there killed eight people and destroyed numerous mobile homes. Two other people died in our state during the storms, in traffic accidents blamed on the weather.
