LEXINGTON, NC (AP) — Two people have been killed and at least 10 others injured after severe weather ripped through southern portions of Davidson County.

Emergency Services Director Jeff Smith said Thursday that authorities have confirmed the deaths of one adult and one child. Authorities planned to release details about the deaths at a news conference late Thursday morning.

Smith said about 10 other people were hurt.

The storm struck southeast of Lexington about 6 p.m., destroying at least one building. Smith said the storm left a substantial swath of damage to commercial and residential buildings and caused significant damage to a mobile home park.

Smith also said officials with the National Weather Service would visit the county Thursday to determine if it was a tornado that struck the county.
