The cell east of Carolina Beach, NC, reminds me in a way of Joplin 2011:

That's likely had a significant tornadic waterspout with it for a while. Truly would be the "storm of the day" if it was producing over land.

With that said, if it holds together it WILL impact Morehead City, or areas immediately to their west. Lots of homes there, so this could get bad.

Man films PCB tornado (language warning):


That's...not nearly as visually intimidating as I thought it would be. Looks like a spin-up honestly, but given the wide, intense damage path, I was expecting a big wedge or multi-vortex. Goes to show you can't always estimate how strong a tornado is just by it's appearance.

Still no ratings out, but Marianna, FL is looking like either high-end EF2 or minimal EF3. I know the house in the first video looks like solid EF3, but it's obvious the home's attached garage failed catastrophically, and took most of the house with it. The huge intact section of roof in the front yard, and the unmoved, undamaged car in the garage also make me go "hmmm". Those are all things that are going to be factored in.
