... Summary...
the National Weather Service in Raleigh NC has confirmed that a
microburst/straight-line wind damage occurred 4.25 miles east of
Eastover in Cumberland County North Carolina on April 15, 2014.

A storm survey was conducted this morning at the damage site.
Damage included several trees and tree branches that were snapped
and carried downwind (in a straight-line fashion) approximately 30
yards... along with two trees that were blown over... in the same
direction. In addition... one Mobile home sustained damage which
included shingle removal on the upwind side of the roof... siding
peeled away from the frame... one broken window as a result of
debris blown into it... and a portion of the base blocks which were
pushed over. A window of a vehicle parked at the residence was
shattered as a tree branch flew into it. A neighboring home also
had some minor siding damage. Finally... a carport was uplifted and
carried across the Road... and landed in a pattern similar to the
tree damage... which also suggested straight-line wind damage. The
nature and degree of damage suggested a maximum wind gust of 60 to
65 mph.

This information can also be found on our website at
weather.Gov/rah.

For reference...
a microburst is a convective downdraft with an affected outflow
area of less than 2 1/2 miles wide and peak winds lasting less
than 5 minutes. Microbursts may induce dangerous
horizontal/vertical wind shears... which can adversely affect
aircraft performance and cause property damage. Straight-line
winds are generally any wind that is not associated with
rotation... used mainly to differentiate them from tornadic winds.
