Severe thunderstorm lashes North Carolina with pea-sized hail

A spring storm system moved into the southeast US and brought gusty winds with pea-sized hail to North Carolina on March 18. Zionville resident @coreyclasley filmed his backyard being pelted by the hail and picked up a clump of the icy stones to show the scale. The National Weather Service issued Tornado Warnings and Tornado Watches for a wide area of the Southeast.
