At least three people were killed and 10 were injured, with emergency officials estimating about 50 homes were impacted.

Edward Conrow, director of the county’s emergency services, said Tuesday that a tornado warning from the National Weather Service (NWS) had been broadcast but at the time the storm was already on the ground causing damage.
