PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) — Severe weather is moving through Hampton Roads and northeast North Carolina. The National Weather Service has issued several tornado warnings throughout the region.

A tornado warning means a tornado has been sighted or indicated by weather radar. If you are in the warning area, you should seek shelter and take cover now. Move to an interior room on the lowest floor of a sturdy building and avoid windows. If you are in a mobile home, a vehicle, or are outside, move to the closest substantial shelter and protect yourself from flying debris.

A tornado watch remains in effect for Hampton Roads and northeast North Carolina until 10 p.m.

A tornado watch means conditions are favorable for tornadoes and severe thunderstorms within and close by the watch area. If you live in this area, be on the lookout for threatening weather conditions.
