The northern end of the line of storms that destroyed homes and injured Burke, McDowell, and other Foothills residents raced through the High Country last night, bringing heavy rain, wind, and the rare January thunderstorms to the area. (photo Submitted) While Burke residents were catching the worst of the line of storms, there was one traffic accident here blamed on the storm—a woman and her children having a scary ride as their car hydroplaned just south of Boone on US 321, spinning off of the road and into an embankment.  Emergency services were called to the scene of the 8pm accident, but none of the occupants reported injury requiring an ambulance according to trooper Alexander. 
Meanwhile, another night of weather is coming our way as tonight’s wet weather changes over to white, with an overnight snowfall bringing up to 4 inches to higher elevations—and along with that, high winds, with winter weather and wind advisories with us into tomorrow afternoon.
