FRANKLIN COUNTY, Va. (WDBJ7) -- Severe storms caused property damage and travel delays in multiple areas of Franklin County on Friday.
Strong, gusty winds and a possible tornado touchdown near Smith Mountain Lake led to downed trees and damage to buildings. A home was destroyed in the storm near the intersection of U.S. 220 and Fishburn Mountain Road. Crews will be on scene on Saturday to survey the damage.
The Franklin County Humane Society posted on its Facebook page that its building had been damaged.
"We are OK at the Humane Society," the post stated. "A possible tornado touched down at the local pound."
No injuries have been reported, according to Franklin County Sheriff's deputies.
Portions of U.S. 220 North were closed when a tree fell across the road, from 8.5 miles south of the junction of State Route 40 Business near Rocky Mount to 3.9 miles south of State Route 40 Business, according to VDOT.
