Storms Cause Scattered Flooding, Power Outages

Strong winds and heavy rain were part of a weather system that moved through the area last night. We’ve heard no reports of major problems locally, but the system did cause problems elsewhere in the state, including extensive flooding up in Boone, fallen trees and scattered power outages.

In Charlotte, a two-car accident at an intersection near uptown resulted in injuries to a News 14 reporter who was on the sidewalk nearby. Caroline Vandergriff was reported to be in stable condition at Carolinas Medical Center after one of the cars slid onto the sidewalk and struck her.
