A low pressure system moved through Virginia on Saturday, causing thousands of power outages, widespread flooding, and at least one confirmed tornado.
Approximately 5,000 Dominion Virginia Power customers in the metro Richmond / Tri-Cities area were in the dark at the height of Saturday's storms.
A Dominion spokesperson tells NBC12 the outages were caused by downed wires. Many of the outages were concentrated along Cary Street, Monument Avenue, and West Broad Street.
Much of the state saw significant rainfall on Saturday. Part of I-95 was shut down due to flooding.
On the Eastern Shore, one person was injured after a tornado touched down near Accomack.
