RALEIGH, N.C. â€“ Â A devastating storm that spawned tornadoes, flash floods and hail as big as softballs has claimed at least 45 lives across the U.S. while roaring through the South and gaining steam in North Carolina and Virginia.
Emergency crews searched for victims in hard-hit swaths of North Carolina, where 62 tornadoes were reported from the worst spring storm in two decades to hit the state. Eleven people were confirmed dead in Bertie County, county manager Zee Lamb said.
Another four were confirmed dead in Bladen County, bringing the state’s death toll to at least 21.
Authorities said at least three more people are dead in neighboring Virginia during the storm’s passage Saturday before the sprawling, potent storm bands moved eastward over the Atlantic.
In the capital city of Raleigh, three family members died in a mobile home park, said Wake County spokeswoman Sarah Willamson-Baker. At that trailer park, residents lined up outside Sunday and asked police guarding the area when they might get back in.
