RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - 10:30 a.m. update: Isaias produced numerous tornado warnings in the early morning but that part of the storm has passed. We’re all clear from the tornado threat now.
The threat for additional flooding and wind as ended too.
Wind gusts reached 50 to 70 mph at the height of the storm with the strongest winds in eastern Virginia near the coastline, as expected.
Rain totals reached anywhere from 3 to 6 inches across Central Virginia, which was expected. Rainfall at Richmond International Airport reached 5.20 inches.
The rainfall was beneficial as it may all but erase the abnormally dry weather we’ve seen the last couple of months.
There was significant damage in a few spots, especially in the Northern Neck. The small community of White Stone was hit hard by a suspected tornado. Debris was showing up on radar just before 6 a.m. in eastern Lancaster County, which makes it highly likely the damage pictured below was caused by a tornado.
