DURHAM, N.C. (WTVD) -- Some quick-moving storms popped up across the Triangle area Friday causing power outages and reported damage.

According to ABC11 Meteorologist Don "Big Weather" Scwenneker, a stalled frontal zone across the area created the scenario for the popup showers and thunderstorms.

The storms could go into the evening hours and may impact some of the high school football games, but most games in the area are expected to not be impacted by the weather.

There were several thunderstorm warnings but all expired by 6:30 p.m.

There are reports of storm damage, including a tree falling on a car in Benson. There have been no reports of injuries.

Thousands were without power, most appear to be in the Holly Springs area.

A woman in Durham shared Ring video that captured the intensity of the quick-moving storm.

The storms have caused delays at RDU because of weather in other parts of the county.

Things are expected to quiet down overnight.
