HATTERAS, N.C. — Authorities say a small tornado spawned from Tropical Storm Hermine knocked over two trailers and injured four people on the North Carolina Outer Banks.
Dare County officials said in a news release that the campground in Hatteras Village was hit around 1:30 a.m. Saturday. Four people were taken to a local clinic with minor injuries.
National Weather Service meteorologist Rich Bandy says a tornado warning was issued for the area at the time, and the damage was likely caused by a twister.
But he said it could be Sunday before meteorologists can make it to the Outer Banks to confirm the tornado touchdown.
Hermine’s outer banks continue to lash the Outer Banks. Ferry service to the barrier island remains suspended until seas calm down.
