RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Tropical Storm Elsa is on the way out of Virginia after bringing heavy rainfall and some minor flooding to the Metro Richmond area. In the Hampton Roads region, there have been several reports of wind damage from possible tornado touchdows.


As of 11:00 p.m., Tropical Storm Elsa has winds of 50 miles per hour and it is moving to the northeast at 25 miles per hour. The storm is 50 miles NNW of Norfolk (NHC uses major cities are reference points) or right around Saluda & Urbanna, VA

Elsa will remain a tropical storm as it crosses the Delmarva Penninsula and then off the coast of southern New Jersey overnight. When you wake up tomorrow, you will see some sun here in Central Virginia, but a weak cold front entering the state will bring us a few afternoon and evening thunderstorms.
