Spotters confirm brief tornado in Northampton County


RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – A tornado was confirmed by the public in Northampton County, reports said.

Just after 3:50 p.m., the National Weather Service had issued a tornado warning for Northampton County. The warning lasted until 4:15 p.m. Hertford County is also included.

The National Weather Service in Wakefield, VA, which is responsible for Northampton County, NC, is waiting to see if there are more damage reports before making a decision on if they will survey the area for a tornado. That storm survey would likely happen Thursday.

The tornado was reported around 3:45 p.m. over Conway, about 8 miles west of Chowan University. It was moving north at 10 mph. Spotters said the tornado has since lifted.
