Tornado In Suffolk, Va

By
Real Estate Agent with Fathom Realty

What do you do when you are watching tv and the weatherman breaks in with a developing story about a tornado.  I moan and groan and wait for him to go away.  He talks about a funnel cloud in Norfolk by the Naval Station.  He shows a video of a funnel cloud in Portsmouth and then he mentions the Sentara Obici Hospital in Suffolk.  I thought he was going to mention that they were bring casualties there but he said they were spared the brunt of the tornado.  Oh no I thought out loud.  I have a listing right behind the hospital.   As the devastation appeared on the tv I could only hope that the sellers were safe and sound.  Hill Point Farms and Lakes Edge looked more like a war zone then a peaceful subdivision.  The tornado skipped and jumped and missed my listing but not the street my sellers lived on.  Thank goodness for them and I am saying a prayer for the rest of the families.  No reports of fatalities.  I don't have any pictures but I am sure we have all seen the devastation brought on by a tornado.

Hey Gene,

Your clients were very lucky. It is amazing how a tornado can destroy one home and not damage the other one just a few feet away.

We have rental listing in the same area that was also spared.  The tornado skipped around the hospital and two schools while devastating the shopping center.

My husband and I were watching tv and out of town relatives called me to tell me what was going on.  I saw the tornado watch messages scrolling across the screen but I thought it was like any other message. Boy was I wrong.

It is simply amazing.  I was going to visit my sellers but the area is off limits unless you live in the community.
