National Weather Service confirms tornado in Baxter County in Friday's storms

The National Weather Service said a tornado hit the city of Greensboro on Sunday and killed one person. It started near Timberlake in northwest Campbell County, moved into western Lynchburg, then crossed the James River into Amherst County.

However, if the damage on either side of the damage path is blown down in one direction on the left side and the opposite direction on the other side of the path, it's likely it was a tornado that caused the damage.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - On Sunday, a survey team from the Little Rock National Weather Service office completed a storm damage assessment located in Johnson County in the community of Ozone.

According to the NWS, the path length of the tornado was 0.46 miles and had a width of 31 yards. Winds ranged from 115 miles per hour to 130 miles per hour. It also did minor damage to a church, to a garage and outbuildings. A storm survey confirmed another tornado blew through Richland Parish near Rayville, Louisiana, on Sunday afternoon.

The Charlotte area is under a tornado watch and a flash flood watch Sunday, and heavy rain is expected as a cold front sweeps the region, according to the weather service.

"It was very unnerving to be in a vehicle out in the storm", Turner said. The strongest winds and the worst damage was in Elon. No serious injuries were reported in those storms. Duke Energy reported about 2,100 customers without service, most in Lancaster and Fairfield Counties.

The storms brought 1.53 inches of rain to Richmond International Airport, and totals varied from roughly 0.75 inch to almost 2 inches across the metro area.
