Viewers capture Sandy's impact

Posted: Updated:
RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

Even before the first rain drops hit the ground in Central Virginia, viewers were sending in images of the storm from the Outer Banks to Virginia's Eastern Shore.

From high waves on the Avalon Pier in Kill Devil Hills to roaring tides in Nags Head, viewers captured the storm's first impact. One photo shared by a viewer shows a police car submerged up in Delaware.

Here in Virginia, some viewers scrambled to get their boats out of the water in Deltaville. Others ransacked shelves from Tappahannock to a Walmart on Iron Bridge Road.

Gwynn's Island was under water and roads were seeing extreme ponding in West Point. Pictures showed an impassable James River Bridge near Newport News.

Some of the damage was much closer to home, including flooding pictures sent in of the Hopewell Yacht Club and an invisible ramp at Deep Bottom.
