Hampton officials are cleaning up debris in the city after a tornado tore through downtown.

No serious injuries were reported on Saturday a day after the tornado struck.

Hampton emergency officials say the areas hardest hit by the storm include the downtown area and the neighborhoods of Merrimac Shores and Park Place. Strong winds knocked down trees and power lines, blew out windows and scattered debris.

Police are urging people to stay away from those areas unless they live there.
