CAPE CHARLES, Va. (AP/WBOC)- Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe says it's a blessing more people didn't die when a tornado swept through a campground on the Eastern Shore that claimed two lives and injured 36 others.
    
McAuliffe toured the Cherrystone Family Camping and RV Resort on the Chesapeake Bay on Friday morning, a day after a tornado knocked down large pine trees, demolished some campers and flipped over others. A married couple from Jersey City, New Jersey was killed when a tree fell on their tent. McAuliffe says their three children were also injured, and their 13-year-old son is in critical condition following surgery.
    
McAuliffe addressed reporters at the popular campground, where cleanup efforts were under way and families were retrieving whatever items they could. McAuliffe also says hundreds of acres of farmland were damaged.
