Storms Rip Through Triad on Thursday

Tim Buckley's Thursday Overnight Forecast

PIEDMONT-TRIAD, NC -- It was another stormy night for some in the Piedmont. Severe storms ripped through Forsyth County, Stokes County, and Rockingham County, bringing heavy rain, high winds, and some damage. 

The severe storm began around 7pm in northern Forsyth County, tracking near Walkertown, and then heading up to Walnut Cove. Several large trees were ripped down and blocked roads in the Walnut Cove community. The storm then slowly moved northward into Stokes County and then Rockingham County.


Torrential rain, and nearly constant lightning was seen for hours. Pictures of dark storm clouds flooded the WFMY newsroom during our reporting on the storm. The storm weakened after 9pm as it moved northward into southern Virginia.

Earlier this week, storms brought damage to Guilford County and Stokes County downing trees and leaving thousands without power.
