2 killed by tornado at Virginia campground

Two people are dead after a tornado hit a popular Virginia campground Thursday.

Thirty-six others were injured.

The storm toppled trees, flipped rv's, and ripped awning from trailers. The Cherrystone Family Camping Resort, along the Chesapeake Bay, was filled with vacationing families.

A couple from New Jersey was killed when a tree fell on their tent. Their 13-year-old son, in a tent next to them, suffered life-threatening injuries.

Joe Colony, from Queen Anne's County, has been going to the campground for 30 years. He says he got an emergency message on his cellphone, and within 30 seconds, the twister hit.
