Mobile home destroyed in reported Edgecombe County tornado

Edgecombe County Sheriff's Office is reporting additional damage from what they believe was a tornado Friday evening.

They say deputies arrived on scene to one call to find a tree on power lines and a mobile home badly damaged from what he calls remnants of a tornado or strait line winds.

Deputies say there were not injuries during the damage to the mobile because the homeowner had left the residence 10 minutes prior to the storm coming through and returned to find the home destroyed.

Emergency crews will be back on scene Saturday morning to further assess the damages.
