WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Wind gusts across the area Tuesday were impressive to say the least as a cold front rushed from west to east. 

This front brought strong, to at times severe thunderstorms to the area that were powerful enough to bring down some branches and cause minor wind damage and a few scattered power outages.

Here’s a list of some of the highest gusts from southeastern North Carolina:

68 mph Southport
61 mph Wrightsville Beach
53 mph Sunny Point
52 mph Figure Eight Island
49 mph Wilmington (ILM)
47 mph Oak Island
46 mph State Port
46 mph Sunset Beach
45 mph Whiteville
44 mph Topsail Beach

The Tornado warning was issued around 12:30 p.m. for a possible waterspout that was close to coming ashore in Oak Island and Caswell Beach. There has not been any confirmation of a tornado touchdown at this time.
