Dallas, NC 4/5/2011
Early in the Am on April 5th, 2011 a storm hit Charlotte and the surrounding areas. The wind knocked over trees all over the area and even two large transmission towers located in Dallas, NC. I drove around the area and got some great pictures. Hard to believe this was not a tornado that did all this damage.
You cannot tell from the pictures how massive this actual tower was. Now I drive around saying “that is a small one” or there is a medium one.” This one was large and I can’t even imagine what it sounded like when it hit. The power in some areas will be out for days while the tower is repaired. Some of the power has been rerouted and along with the traffic for this area.
I drove around and took some additional picture to share of the damage that the wind did. Take a look at them and give me your vote wind or tornado?
Below is aerial footage of both towers that a new crew provided. Here you can see the roof of the home and additional damage from the storm. When you are looking down into those peoples home I wonder if they were in that bed? I wonder what it sounded like. A train I bet! I will see if I can’t get you guys the inside scoop.
