Strong storms possible in eastern NC Wedesday afternoon and evening


As if worrying about Hurricane Irma or Hurricane Jose isn't bad enough, we've got a line of strong thunderstorms to contend beginning Wednesday evening.

A line of storms currently stretching from Elizabeth City and the Virginia border down through South Carolina is approaching our area. As of 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, the National Weather Service in Morehead City/Newport has not issued any warnings. However, that could change as the storms get closer.
