Multiple injuries reported as possible tornado hits campground on Virginia's Eastern Shore

Virginia emergency management officials say numerous injuries are being reported following a possible tornado at a campground at Virginia's Eastern Shore.

Spokeswoman Laura Southard says multiple agencies including Virginia State Police are responding to the Cherrystone Family Camping & RV Resort in rural Northampton County.

Southard says more than a couple dozen injuries have been reported but most of them are minor. She could not confirm reports of possible deaths.

The National Weather Service had issued a tornado warning for the area that expired at 9 a.m. Thursday.

Jay Diem, a photographer with Eastern Shore News that's near the scene, told The Associated Press that the road to the campground is blocked by police.
