At least three people were killed, including a three-year-old, when a severe storm brought damaging winds and at least one tornado to Virginia today. The governor of Virginia, Terry McAuliffe, declared a state of emergency from the severe weather event. Cities that were hit hard included Waverly, Alexandria, Chesapeake, Virginia Beach, Richmond, Hampton Roads, Newport News, and Tappahannock. By far the worst hit, as known so far, was Waverly, where all three deaths occurred. Homes and buildings were destroyed and cars were left overturned. The above video shows some of the terrible damage that the tornado in Waverly left behind. The storms in Virginia are winding down, but the damage is just now being assessed.
