Sunday 3/6 - Storm Recap & Rain Totals

Here are radar images from earlier today when the storms raced through the area. Notice some "bowing" of the storms by 7:30, which is typically indicative of powerful straight line winds. There were several reports of wind damage in Chesterfield County, especially near Matoaca and Chester. There were also damage reports in Greensville, Charles City and New Kent Counties.

This storm system dumped a lot of rain today, especially for our western communities, where totals ranged from 1 to 3".
