East Nelson County, VA
As Tommy discussed might be the case in his Thursday weathercast, some severe thunderstorms moved through the area Thursday afternoon causing some dame, particularly in East Nelson County and in Buckingham County. “We have 13 spans of wire on the ground near the intersection of laurel road and rockfish river road affecting a good number of members. That will take some time to repair before service is restored to that area of the Martins Store substation. Other outages in that substation area are scattered,” Greg Kelly with CVEC told BRLM around 5PM Thursday – June 13, 2013 regarding damage in East Nelson County. Greg has additional widespread information in this other update post on our site.
By far the more violent storms were well east and north of the Blue Ridge east of I-95 toward the eastern shore.
“VDOT and Fire Members are working to clear the trees that are in the road in that area,” Jaime Miller, Nelson’s Emergency Services Director told us around 5:20 Thursday afternoon.
Additional reports of trees down have been coming in from Gladstone in SE Nelson and Northern Appomattox.
