Governor Tours NC Tornado Damage Areas

Gov. Mike Easley says it will be several days before officials know what type of government assistance to request for residents of central North Carolina who were hit by a tornado.

Easley toured the damaged area today in Guilford, Forsyth and Davie counties.

One person was killed when the severe weather system roared through late Thursday and early Friday.

Easley said eight were injured and eight homes were destroyed, in addition to scores that were damaged.

The governor says the Department of Transportation will work to remove debris as fast as possible.
