Severe weather update

Good morning from Gray. Here's a look at some of the stories you will want to catch before you leave the house on 12 News Today.

We will have an update on that deadly tornado that ripped through Virginia's Eastern Shore. Governor McAuliffe will visit the area to survey storm damage, and meet with people who were affected. Virginia State Police say a New Jersey couple was killed after a tornado toppled a tree on their tent at a popular campground. One survivor says the storm hit less than a minute after a cell phone emergency message.

Also, high water is still causing concerns back here at home. Parts of Hopkins road in Chesterfield remains closed this morning due to flooding. 

Plus, nearly 24 hours after a tractor trailer made a complete mess on Interstate 95 South, all lanes are *finally* back open. An S-U-V flipped over, spilling fuel. Authorities say there are no health concerns when it comes to drinking-water- but those who live near Swift Creek - should expect to smell the gasoline for several days.
