More deadly storms cause havoc in the South

(AP/ WVLT)- And it's another day of wild weather across the south.

This time powerful storms strike North and South Carolina, leaving behind quite a mess.

A lightning strike caused a church to collapse in South Carolina.

And those fast-moving storms first took aim at North Carolina, late this afternoon.

Authorities report several people have died.

Strong winds and possible tornados hit cities and towns throughout the state.

Here's the scene just outside of Raleigh.

A number of mobile homes were destroyed while large trees were uprooted.

And some customers were in Lowes hardware store in Sanford- when a good part of its roof was torn off. As of right now, there are no reports of injuries.

The National Weather Service believes a tornado is to blame.
