A strip mall was damaged by a severe thunderstorm. In one store a fence was blown through a roll-up door at the back of the store. The wind then traveled from back to front inside the store, rearranging the merchandise and finally blowing out the front door. Across the street, part of the roof was blown off a discount store. Trees and power lines were blown down, as was part of a  billboard. Storage buildings were overturned. Much of the damage was near Airport Road and South Moore Road.
