Greensboro, NC -- Scattered showers and thunderstorms began to develop across the Piedmont Triad around two o'clock Friday afternoon. The storms quickly strengthened and soon started producing damaging winds, quarter sized hail, heavy rain and frequent lightning.

Severe winds in excess of 60 mph accompanied many of the storms that rolled through leaving many with downed trees, tree limbs and power lines in it's wake.  A storm that moved through through Winston-Salem left nearly 4,000 homes without power.

Multiple trees and power lines were reported down in addition to a damaged transformer near Glen Raven in Alamance County around 6:15 pm.

A tree was also blown down on to a house earlier in the afternoon four miles north of Ramseur in Randolph County. No injuries were reported.
