I caught this video (@ 4:53pm) of a smallish tornado forming & dropping down during one of the MANY warnings. It moved right>left over the (apparent) Church Hill skyline as I looked East from the Northbound lane of the 9th Street bridge. You have to watch carefully and patiently as it goes in & out of shape. Haven’t seen “rotation” since I was a boy in N.W. Ohio.
More than 6900 power outages in Richmond, Chesterfield and Henrico as of 6 PM today. If your power went out, please contact Dominion.
There were several Tornado and Flash Flood Warnings in effect for Richmond City and the surrounding areas this afternoon. We hope you all avoided being out and stayed safe. There’s been one fatality from all the multiple tornadoes in Richmond so far.
