RICHMOND, Va. (AP)- One day after Virginia was battered by at least one tornado, Gov. Terry McAuliffe is heading out to three of the hardest-hit regions of the state to assess the destruction.
McAuliffe's first stop Thursday is Appomattox, where one of the state's four storm deaths was recorded. A funnel cloud left an 8- to 10-mile path of debris, injuring seven people.
McAuliffe's next stop is Waverly, where three people were killed as a tornado carved a 5-mile path of destruction.
The governor's final stop is Tappahannock. At least 15 structures were destroyed and 25 injured when the storm passed through Essex County and the town of Tappahannock.
McAuliffe declared a state of emergency within hours after the destruction in Waverly.
