COLUMBUS / BLADEN COUNTY, NC (WECT) – Officials from the National Weather Service could spend part of Tuesday morning in parts of the area to determine whether or not tornadoes touched down.

Strong storms rolled through the area late Monday afternoon and into the evening, causing for the National Weather Service to issue tornado warnings in Bladen, Columbus and Pender Counties.

According to meteorologist Sandy Lacorte from the National Weather Service, the weather service will be in contact with emergency managers in Bladen and Columbus county and possibly survey the Hallsboro area to determine whether or not a tornado touched down.

At this time, there is no confirmation of a tornado touchdown.
