ASHEVILLE, N.C. - The National Weather Service has confirmed two tornadoes touched down in eastern North Carolina over the weekend.

The first hit Saturday night in Willow Spring and then a second tornado touched down minutes later in Garner.

Both were classified as EF zeroes.

Some neighbors said they slept through the storms and woke up to find damage scattered in their yard.

No one was hurt.

The same powerful winds that caused damage in Charlotte, toppled trees onto homes and littered roads statewide with branches and debris.

The wind gusts were so strong, they even pulled a tree out of the ground, landing on a historic home in Asheville.

Winds there reached up to 60 miles per hour.
