Thursday tornado tally

Thursday's tornado damage in central Virginia will be surveyed by the National Weather Service today, and we should know the estimated wind speeds and ratings of each tornado by later Friday or this weekend. As of this morning, there are three tornadoes we know of (confirmed by multiple sightings, videos, and pictures), two of which may have produced multiple touchdowns (see T's on the Google map below).

Here's the detailed list:

Louisa County Supercell Tornado Reports:
  • 2 miles South of Boswells Tavern: roof damage to the historic 18th century vacant house.
  • Green Springs: trees down and roof damage
New Kent County Supercell Tornado Reports:
