Multiple Skywarn repeaters in Raleigh and Charlotte active. Both have links on Broadcastify if you care to listen.

I know theres been some observed Tornados around Charlotte. CLT airport was shutdown for a period of time, with the ATC tower evacuated.

Damage reported around Kannapolis.

Most of NC is under a Tornado Watch (meaning tornados can occur) at this time (1pm), except the SE (wilmington area).

There's a lot of damage in the town of Liberty. We sent a crew to the area (FOX8WGHP) and we'll have reports this afternoon.

Several people report seeing a tornado but our meteorologists can't confirm that and say the NWS can't yet either.

A friend in the area sent me a bunch of pictures.

i drove thru the edge of a tornado warned cell near gold hill/rockwell. relatively dinky, but exciting none-the-less. same one hit my uncles place and laid a pine tree out blocking his driveway and another collapsing his carport. his property was clear cut a couple of years ago, so at some point a neighbor is going to want their trees back we guess :)

Chris, yall and the news folks be safe going in and out of there. Back roads still blocked in places I'm sure. Otherwise 85/421 should be just fine.
From the scanner side, It may be worth just to monitor the Staley & Cane Mt VIPER sites in a "wild-card" type search mode.
