She said the storm lasted about an hour. "I had tears in my eyes because it was so horrible," she said.

A storm front moved over the East Coast on Friday, dumping more than 6 inches of rain on North Carolina and rescuing green-backed beetles from the heat on the streets of Philadelphia. The sprawling storm system that stretched from New Jersey to northern Florida and across the Gulf states was the same system that brought rain to the drought-parched Farm Belt earlier in the week before stalling over the East Coast, forecasters said. A record 6.49 inches of rain fell Friday in Wilmington, N.C.
