National Weather Service releases new pictures of tornado damage

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - The National Weather Service has so far confirmed tornadoes in at least seven counties across the state, the newest in Isle of Wight.

The deadly tornado that hit Gloucester County started in Surry — where you can find one of the state's nuclear power plants.

It's similar to the North Anna power station in Louisa.

The twister bent back a fence at the plant. Also, part of the switchyard was damaged.

Dominion says the tornado didn't hit any of the nuclear reactors and no "out of the ordinary" levels of radioactive material were released.

The National Weather Service confirms that an EF2 tornado hit Isle of Wight County.

The service says there is a path of damage from east of Walters to just west of Windsor.

They expect to finish a report on this damage sometime today.

A tornado has also been confirmed in Frederick and Carroll counties in Maryland.

The National Weather Service plans to have new information on that tornado later this week.
