NWS Confirms 3 Tornadoes in Va. Late Thursday

WAKEFIELD, Va. (AP) - The National Weather Service has confirmed three separate tornados in two Virginia counties near the Chesapeake Bay.

The weather service office in Wakefield says the tornadoes touched down between 8:45 p.m. and shortly after 10 p.m. Thursday in Richmond and Lancaster counties. The region is known as the Northern Neck.

Meteorologist Jon McGee says the twisters each were rated an EFo, the lowest-rated tornado with winds ranging from 65 mph to 85 mph.

He said a survey team had not compiled a report yet on its findings but damage was limited to uprooted trees and snapped limbs, with no structural damage.
