NORFOLK -- Strong thunderstorms rolled through Hampton Roads Wednesday night.

There were severe thunderstorm warnings for the ABC13 viewing area for much of the evening advising people of the threat of heavy rain, strong winds and lightning.

13News Now viewers sent photos - some of hail in the Holland section of Suffolk and one of a tree that fell onto a shed in Hampton.

A tweet from the City of Hampton said 'Lightning interrupted the last bit of trash collection today. Routes will be finished first thing in the a.m.'

In Surry County, a tree fell during the storm, blocking Oak Hill Road at Martin Luther King Highway in both directions, police said.

There were scattered power outages on the Peninsula and Southside and some customers still were without power early Thursday. As of 5:30 a.m., the biggest outage was in Suffolk, where about 140 customers were without electricity, according to the Dominion Virginia Power Web site.

Most of the outages were caused by the storm.
