BRUNSWICK COUNTY, Va. -- Cleanup is underway after powerful storms caused damage in Brunswick County Friday evening.

In fact, a possible tornado touched down near South Hill around 6:50 p.m. There were reports of a tree on a home and the tops of some trees twisted off.

Additionally, a massive tree was uprooted next to one home in the town of Brodnax along Evans Creek Road. Luckily, that home had minimal damage.

Several trees were downed in the storm, blocking roads.

Another neighbor said one woman who lives nearby lost 12 trees in the storm.

Sadly, one of those trees struck her horse and the animal died, according to neighbors.

No other injuries were reported.
