KILMARNOCK, Va. (AP) - The town manager of Kilmarnock says storms have left a trail of minor damage that stretched from a local hospital and through a neighborhood before ending at a Catholic church.

Tom Saunders said Thursday that some windows were blown out at the hospital while many trees and some sheds were knocked over. The hospital operated on emergency power for a couple hours while many residents remained without power.

Kilmarnock is east of Richmond on the Chesapeake Bay. Saunders said he couldn’t confirm if a tornado came through, but he said the damage appears to be consistent with one.

Saunders said winds appeared to be rotating based on “the way the trees spun off and twisted off up high.”
