WINCHESTER, Va. (AP) — A National Weather Service team is heading to northwest Virginia to see if a tornado touched down north of Winchester and into West Virginia’s Berkeley County.
The thunderstorm Wednesday pelted the region with hail the size of golf balls.
The Winchester Star reports that storm damage from southern Berkeley County and an area north of Hayfield in Frederick County included downed tree limbs.
The National Weather Service will be looking for downed trees to determine whether a tornado touched down.
Trees that are uprooted or twisted off at the top typically indicate a twister.
