Storms Hit North Carolina Hardest

A storm system that launched at least 241 tornadoes over 14 states hit North Carolina Saturday, killing at least 21 and devastating homes, flipping cars and throwing livestock into the air, the Washington Post reported.

The three-day system was one of the worst spates of twisters ever recorded, the LA Times said. At least 45 have been reported dead nationwide, and more than 241 tornadoes were spotted.

It was the deadliest day for tornadoes in North Carolina since 1984, when 22 twisters killed 42 people across the state.
