Associated Press (AP)-Officials say a wall at a North Carolina distribution center was toppled by a severe storm on Friday, but none of the 30 workers inside the facility was hurt.

News outlets report emergency officials in Orange County say high winds knocked down the wall at the Gildan Distribution Center in Mebane.

The emergency officials couldn’t be reached for additional comment on Friday evening.

The weather service also reported half-dollar-sized hail and 60 mph wind gusts near Raleigh-Durham International Airport just before 4 p.m., but there were no immediate reports of damages.
