BREAKING – GREENSBORO, N.C. — Authorities declared a local state of emergency in Greensboro, North Carolina, after an apparent tornado caused damage in several locations around that city. Greensboro police said in a tweet Sunday that there also has been one storm-related fatality in Greensboro, but they gave no immediate details of that death, CBS reports.

They did not elaborate on the damages. But earlier media reports said high winds damaged at least seven homes, destroyed one mobile classroom at an elementary school and toppled trees and power lines.

Officials said one person was killed Sunday after a tornado struck the city, part of a severe storm system that also dumped two feet of snow on parts of the Upper Midwest and knocked out power to hundreds of thousands, Fox News reports.

Greensboro police gave no immediate details about the death. However, Fox 8 reported that the victim was a motorist who was hit by a falling tree. Authorities declared a state of emergency in the city after high winds reportedly damaged at least seven homes and destroyed one mobile classroom.

About 75,000 homes and businesses were without power late Sunday afternoon in the Carolinas. Duke Energy said about 43,000 customers lacked power in North Carolina, and another 9,000 in South Carolina. South Carolina Electric and Gas Company reported 23,000 customers without power in South Carolina.

The airport in Charlotte said on Twitter Sunday that severe weather briefly caused a ground stop and forced air traffic controllers to leave their tower. The ground stop was later lifted.

Emergency crews are conducting emergency checks in the areas affected and urged anyone needing immediate shelter to head to a local high school. Separately the city of Greensboro tweeted that damage was “prominent” but that a tornado had not been immediately confirmed by the National Weather Service.

Severe storms have blown down trees, caused airport delays and knocked out power to tens of thousands in North and South Carolina.
