RICHMOND, Va. — A Tornado Watch was issued Friday morning for southwestern Virginia.
The watch, which means conditions are favorable for severe weather, was issued until 5 p.m.
If a Tornado Warning is issued for your location, it means severe weather is occurring or imminent — and that you should take cover immediately.
“Additional watches will likely be issued for much of Central Virginia this afternoon and this evening,” CBS 6 meteorologist Mike Stone said. “Storms with damaging winds and isolated tornadoes are expected.”
