RALEIGH, N.C. - A strong storm system destroyed a building still under construction in North Carolina and the whole thing was caught on camera.

A wildlife photographer captured footage of the strong winds knocking over part of a condo still in the process of being built.

Forecasters said wind gusts in the area reached 85 miles per hour, toppling all of that hard work in just a few seconds.

Officials said the severe storms also knocked out power for thousands of customers in the Carolinas and northern Georgia.
