This past weekend, Greensboro and surrounding areas were struck by a tornado that damaged hundreds of homes and business in its path. The tornado was first spotted near U.S. 29 and East Gate City Boulevard early Sunday evening. Within seconds a second tornado was spotted in Monroeton.
The devastating tornados resulted in over 6,000 power outages in Forsyth County and caused extensive damage throughout Greensboro.
This powerful storm displaced hundreds of families throughout Greensboro. This morning, WGHP/FOX 8 TV station hosted a 13-hour telethon to help raise money and supplies to assist those affected. The station is working with the local Salvation Army of Greensboro, Winston-Salem, High Point, and Burlington counties.
David Daggett and Griff Shuler volunteered at the Disaster Relief Telethon for Tornado Victims this morning to help those affected by this weekend’s devastating storms.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of those affected by this weekend’s storms. If you would like to donate to the Disaster Relief Telethon, please call 336-821-FOX8. The telethon will end at 7 PM.
