Richmond, Va. ( A powerful cold front flipped cars in Lynchburg. A trained storm spotter reported a tornado that overturned cars, knocked down trees and damaged buildings. Another possible tornado in the Danville area destroyed a house, when a tree fell on it, and a restaurant lost part of it's roof when a sign came down on it. 

Thousands lost power in the Richmond area as heavy rain and winds came down overnight. forecaster Andrew Freiden says we were spared the worst of the storm as it came through during the night, not during the day when the sun can intensify a storm.
