Just a few short days after the official start of summer, a waterspout formed on the North Carolina coast and moved toward land, becoming a tornado. The tornado struck land near Bogue in Carteret County during the afternoon of Saturday, June 25, 2016. Local news reports have shared that one injury has occurred as of this writing, and damage to area property includes:
- Single-family homes
- Mobile homes
- Outdoor furniture
Although this tornado was rated the least severe level (F0 out of F5 on the Fujita Tornado Damage Scale), The Carteret County News-Times reported that the storm was strong enough to lift an 18-foot boat and drop it on the porch of a house.
