Just a couple of months after a tornado ripped through Farmville in Pitt county, a storm tore through the town again. Many people think another tornado hit, but that has not been confirmed.

Many residents in Farmville felt the strong winds around 5:30 p.m. Thursday and say it only lasted for a few minutes. A tree came down on a house. Several trees were knocked down in neighborhoods, and at the Farmville Golf and Country Club where general manager Charles Rose says the storm was right over the club house.

"All the sudden the wind just started swirling and started raining pretty good and a few minutes later nickle size hail," said Rose.

Emergency officials tell WITN no one was injured in Farmville from the storm.
