David Carter, director of the county's emergency management services, said the storm hit about 3:45 p.m. and damaged 13 mobile homes and a storage building on McGirt Gin Road. The homes were located six miles northeast of Maxton near the Hoke County line.
Seven of the mobile homes -- five of which were unoccupied -- were completely demolished, Carter said. He said that he did not know the name of the injured woman. The Red Cross put one of the families in a local motel.
Carter said the storm caused about $130,00O in damages.
Chuck Holtzinger, a National Weather Service official, said that straight-line wind speeds were between 80 and 100 mph Saturday afternoon. Holtzinger said the storm cell, which included hail, was moving east at 30 to 40 mph.
Holtzinger said there were no reports of a funnel cloud.
Much of Robeson County was spared, as the storm slipped past us to the north.
