    Last Friday, a severe thunderstorm had been spotted by the NWS early in the morning around 12-1 a.m. This storm was later reported to be a tornadic thunderstorm, and produced it's first tornado around 2:30-3 a.m in SC. This storm continued to produce tornadoes as it moved further up North. At 8:10 a.m, the storm hit Virginia Beach, VA. Due to this storm, all school buses were told to stop at the nearest school and take shelter. This alert happened at 9 a.m and ended around 9:10 a.m. All schools were then continued to it's daily schedule. More tornadoes had been reported around the area, causing Virginia Beach to remain under a Tornado Watch. Later that day, the storm moved continued moving North and soon Northeast into the Atlantic Ocean. There had been reported injuries and no deaths.

    Information was provided by the National Weather Service of Wakefield, Virginia and WAVY 10 NEWS.

    I'm a little unclear - this single thunderstorm developed at midnight and went continually through 9am? That seems pretty long especially by east coast standards.

    My friend had told me that the storm was formed around 12 a.m, so I put down what I was told. If I am wrong, then I will go over the information and correct it.

    That seems EXTREMELY unlikely, so you might double-check.
