RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - The National Weather Service is confirming that a tornado hit central Virginia.

 

The Richmond Times-Dispatch (http://bit.ly/QdKWcd) reports that the weather service said the tornado hit northeastern Goochland County on Monday afternoon. It was the lowest-level twister, producing winds of 65-85 mph.

 

The Goochland tornado was part of a brief but intense storm that swept through the Richmond area, punching a hole in the outfield fence of the minor league baseball park, downing trees and knocking out power to more than 100,000 electric customers.

 

Dominion Virginia Power reports that 38,000 customers remained without power on Tuesday.
