Popular campground ripped apart by tornado
CAPE CHARLES, VA - Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe will tour a campground on the Eastern Shore where two people were killed and dozens were injured after a tornado hit.
McAuliffe is scheduled to visit the Cherrystone Family Camping & RV Resort on Friday.
A married couple from Jersey City, New Jersey was killed when a tree fell on their tent Thursday. Their 13-year-old son was severely injured when the same tree fell on his neighboring tent.
State police say another 35 people were injured in the tornado. McAuliffe cut short a political fundraising trip in Aspen, Colorado, to survey the damage.
More than 1,300 people were at the campground in tents, campers and cottages when the storm hit, knocking down trees and flipping over some campers. A tractor-trailer driving on U.S. 13 was also knocked over during the storm.
