Following Storm, Thousands Without Power; 1 Dead In Greensboro

The severe storms that moved through the Charlotte area Sunday toppled trees and knocked out power for many residents. Duke Energy says about 5,000 customers around Charlotte are without power this morning.

Several flights at Charlotte Douglas were canceled or delayed and air traffic controllers were forced to leave their tower.  Traffic along I-77 near Davidson was disrupted for several hours because of power lines that were knocked down. Some areas reported golf-ball size hail.

In Greensboro, authorities declared a state of emergency after an apparent tornado caused damage in several locations around the city. Police say the storm is being blamed for one fatality there.
