National Weather Service: EF-0 tornado touched down in Bedford County

National Weather Service: EF-0 tornado touched down in Bedford County

As of 11 p.m. Thursday evening, Pine Street was closed after a detached roof from a building structure blocked the roadway, according to a tweet from the Holly Hill Police Department.

Barbara Taylor and her great grandson survey the damage left from the storm they say they were lucky to survive.

The National Weather Service has confirmed that an EF-0 tornado touched down in Bedford County on Friday. Winds in the twister were between 70 and 80 miles per hour.

As it moved northeast, the thunderstorm triggered another tornado warning for Chesterfield County and a portion of Richmond, but there were no subsequent reports of another touchdown in that area.

No injuries or deaths were reported. There were also reports of water ponding on a number of roads, he said.

"We did have some buildings that were damaged, some trees that were snapped off and blown over so, not to take it lightly, but an EF 1 your getting close to 90 to 100 miles per hour so enough wind to cause damage".

In Charles City County, a tree fell onto the Wings of Love Outreach Ministries southwest of Roxbury.

Damage photos show tractor trailers leaning against each other, toppled during strong winds.

The tornado touched down just east of the Chowan River near Whites Landing Road and Gum Pond Road.

Weather service investigators planned to visit Friday to determine whether the damage was caused by a tornado.
