Weekend tornadoes rip through coastal Florida and Virginia causing major damage

 A pair of weekend tornadoes struck along the coastal Atlantic touching down on Virginia and Florida as powerful winds and heavy rains hit parts of the South.

 On Sunday, a tornado was confirmed shortly after 6 p.m. ET in Virginia Beach, Virginia. The twister landed about three hours after the National Weather Service issued a tornado warning for the area, the weather service and city officials reported.

 There were no immediate reports of deaths or injuries.

 Early damage reports included downed trees in the Great Neck area, including trees falling on a house and a vehicle, Virginia Beach city officials tweeted. The city's fire department also tweeted that crews were responding to "multiple calls" of major storm damage and "reports of multiple homes with gas leaks." 

 As a precaution, Virginia Beach officials decided to cancel Sunday night's performances of the popular Something in The Water outdoor festival. 

 "No one wants to make this call, but we cannot predict nor negotiate with the weather tonight. It is our responsibility to ensure public safety above all else," City Manager Patrick Duhaney said in a statement.
