Previous story:
Saturday's tornadoes left a path of destruction in Wilson.

Near the intersection of Forest Hills Road and Highway 42, a wall was ripped off the Exclusive Cleaners dry cleaning building, and it looks like it demolished a car on its way down.

Across the street at Walgreens, an 18-wheeler was on its side, and multiple cars were piled into each other.

Power lines were down everywhere, and police, fire fighters, and Wilson electric workers were busy assessing the scene and working to keep people safe.
