By photos by George Smith, 09/26/22 9:35 AM

PRESCOTT – NC 31 in Nevada County was blocked for several hours Sunday afternoon as a strong thunderstorm cell brought heavy rain and strong winds to parts of the county. The Sutton Community had a big tree blown over; county crews had to cut up and cleared the roadway after a couple of hours. Wyatt Ghormley, 7, had a new “toy” to play on for a little while.  According to George Smith who took the photos, his area got nearly an inch of rain in 35 minutes.
   Hempstead County Sheriff James Singleton reports that Hempstead County only saw a few trees down and a couple of power lines downed.
