Tornado-Damaged Campground Set To Reopen Friday

The Northampton County Sheriff’s Office says the Eastern Shore campground struck by a killer tornado last week is expected to reopen Friday morning. The Sheriff’s office released a statement yesterday that Cherrystone Campground on the Chesapeake bay is set to reopen Friday, following a community cleanup this week. The campground posted on its Facebook page that tomorrow, they will have a community cleanup day to pick up all the little pieces left behind, following the EF1 tornado that knocked down trees, flipped over campers, sent more than two dozen people to the hospital, and killed a New Jersey couple six days ago.

Most of the patients have been released, though one person remains in critical condition.
