This morning as we were heading to shot our “Legal Matters” Segment on the Hampton Roads Show, WAVY Channel 10. The Emergency Broad Cast System began breaking in giving Tornado Warnings and Water Spouts spotted in the viewing area. As we entered the studio we learned that our show was delayed due to storm coverage. As we looked across the Elizabeth River in Portsmouth, the clouds were very dark and the rain began to fall. Due to the severe weather this morning, the Hampton Roads Show aired on FOX43, @11:00am.
It was after the tapping, we later found out that the Tornado had touched down at Cherrystone Family Campground, in Cheriton, 3 critical patients have been taken to Riverside Shore Memorial, along with 8 trauma, 8 pediatrics and 6 with minor injuries. At least one child from the Cherrystone Campground was taken to Virginia Beach General and then transferred to Children’s Hospital of the King’s Daughters. There were two adults transferred there as well.
As of 12:00pm the National Weather Service Office, Wakefield, VA was in route to the campground to survey the area and determine if a tornado did in fact touch down.
