Number Changed to Eight

The National Weather Service now says at least eight tornadoes struck Virginia over four hours Monday. That's two more than had been previously confirmed.

Meteorologist Bryan Jackson says officials are trying to determine whether two additional storms also were tornadoes.

In Suffolk, residents of neighborhoods ravaged by the worst of the twisters were allowed to move back home today if their houses were still livable. Others whose homes were condemned were allowed to go through their belongings and bring in contractors and insurance adjusters to begin figuring out what could be salvaged and what could be rebuilt.

Some said they were frustrated that they weren't able to go home sooner and complained about what they said was a lack of information from officials, who were relying largely on the media to spread word of developments.

About 200 people were injured in the tornadoes. Nobody was killed.
