The center of the storm headed out east earlier Sunday morning.


Rain made for some slippery conditions on the roads Sunday morning.

A car on I-85 near 15-501 hydroplaned and hit a guard rail. The driver is expected to be okay.

In Durham, a car struck a telephone pole on Glenn School Road.

Strong gusts of 25 to 30 mph winds were also a concern throughout the day.
