The storms killed at least one person as a building collapsed at Old Dominion Flooring in Chesterfield. More than 10,000 Dominion Energy customers were without power as the storms raced through the region.

In total, eight tornadoes were confirmed in the state, including seven in the Richmond metro area.

The tornado warnings for the Richmond area started around 2 p.m. and continued for several hours.

The storms also caused damage in the city of Richmond, as trees fell on power lines and downed power lines. No serious injuries were reported in the city.

Earlier in the day Monday, the line of storms sparked possible tornadoes in southern Virginia around 10 a.m.

One of those warnings gave NBC12 meteorologist Andrew Freiden “chills” while he was broadcasting on air.
