Officials say search-and-rescue operations following three destructive tornadoes in southeast Virginia have not uncovered any dead or additional injured.
Suffolk Fire Chief Mark Outlaw told a news conference that teams with search dogs found nothing more than "torn up lumber and torn up houses."
The storms yesterday resulted in more than 200 injuries but no deaths.
Gov. Timothy Kaine says the tornadoes caused "very, very serious devastation." But Kaine told WTOP Radio in Washington that it's "kind of amazing" there were not more significant injuries.
Kaine is touring the area today.
