VIRGINIA BEACH, VA. – A Virginia Beach Sheriff’s Deputy is rebuilding after his home was one of dozens left damaged by severe weather Friday night.

He said a tree fell on his truck – totaling it, his chimney hit a neighbor’s house and a tree branch flew through his siding.

The deputy told News 3 he watched the tornado as it made its way toward his house.

Goodey said it’s something he never expected to see in the Resort City.

“The headache — I’m overwhelmed,” Goodey said. “Sometimes I wanna cry, sometimes I wanna laugh about it. I wanna say that everybody was safe. Material things can be replaced.”

The deputy has started the cleanup but says his family needs additional funds to help cover the cost.
