The Eastville Fire Department reports three people were killed when a tornado touched down on the Eastern Shore at the Cherrystone Campground on Thursday morning.
This is a horrible situation-- a campground is the WORST place for a storm to hit...
A viewer with a friend there says: "Junie says it looks like a war zone…rescue units responding from multiple places…"
These pictures from Joe Buttner. I should mention this area WAS under a tornado warning. It was issued at 8:20am, the storm hit at 8:40am.

0840 AM TSTM WND DMG CHERRYSTONE 37.31N 76.00W
