More Tornadoes Confirmed

The National Weather Service has confirmed three additional tornadoes touching down in southeastern Virginia. That brings Monday's total to six.

The three new ones added to the list were in the Carrsville area of Isle of Wight County, the Claremont area of Surry County and along the Gloucester-Mathews County border. At least a dozen homes and some farm buildings were destroyed, but nobody was injured in those tornadoes.

Mike Rusnak of the weather service says the three twisters were significantly weaker than one that slammed Suffolk. The other tornadoes were in Colonial Heights and Brunswick County.

About 200 people were injured.
