Reports of storm damage stretch from Louisa to Dinwiddie

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

Friday's storms left a big mess in their wake with trees into homes, power lines down and, in some places, the roof blown off buildings.

According to the National Weather Service, the damage was mostly likely caused by straight-line winds.

From Richmond to the Tri-Cities, there were dozens of reports of trees blocking roads, falling into homes and downing power lines but no injuries were reported.

On Chippenham Road in Chesterfield, a large tree was split down its middle, blocking the road and crashing into a neighboring house.

The home sustained minor damage and no one was hurt.

On Warminster Drive also in Chesterfield, a tree uprooted by the wind, fell and grazed the front of a house. The homeowner was out of town.

One viewer in Louisa sent NBC12 pictures that show a structure destroyed by the wind. The Louisa County Sheriff's Office said, at least two homes there are un-inhabitable, but no one was hurt.

Another photo sent to NBC12 by a Facebook fan in Matoaca shows a kid's playground obliterated. Over in Amelia, the roof was blown clean off a building. No one was injured in either incident.
