The National Weather Service received wind damage reports from many of the area counties as a cold front moved through.
Several roads were closed by trees that were knocked down by the wind.
One particularly scary situation happened when a large tree fell on a car on NC-157 at New Sharon Church Road in Orange County. The incident happened around 6:00 a.m. Luckily, no injuries were reported.
The North Carolina Highway Patrol handled the accident investigation.
