A possible tornado and high winds damaged or destroyed dozens of homes in Stafford County, VA, near Fredericksburg Thursday night. High winds, hail, and flooding was reported in the Washington, DC, suburbs.

Homes and other buildings were damaged in Greensboro, NC Thursday night where emergency officials shut down I-40 for several hours due to the number of accidents caused by the storms. And another apparent tornado destroyed several homes near Clemmons, NC.

Damaging storms were also reported in Tupelo, MS, where homes and businesses were badly damaged and in Alabama where several mobile homes were destroyed. Emergency officials in south-central Tennessee also reported homes damaged and destroyed.
