RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina officials say at least three people have been killed as a result of storms that rampaged across the state.

Raleigh officials report multiple fatalities in the state's capital city, while Dunn Police Chief B.P. Jones says a woman was killed in his town in the central part of the state.

State emergency management officials also confirm multiple deaths, but they don't have an exact count.

The storm has killed 17 people in other states. As it raced across North Carolina, it brought flash floods, hail storms and wind strong enough to rip rooftops off buildings and homes.

North Carolina public safety spokeswoman Julia Jarema says the state has logged reports of 62 tornadoes. Emergency crews are working to repair the damage.
