AMHERST Co., Va. (WSET) -- Two main neighborhoods in Amherst County were hit and more than a dozen homes were severely damaged after a tornado touched down in the area Sunday evening.

One homeowner said he was trapped inside his home for about an hour.

David Neighbors' roof was blown off and the sides of the walls came crashing down on him.

Luckily, his neighbor came over and helped him out.

"That door right there came in on me and I didn’t realize that the roof was gone until I looked up and that boy came over and helped me get out of there," Neighbors said.

Neighbors said he managed to get upstairs where his neighbor put a ladder in and brought him to safety.

He only had a few minor cuts and scrapes, but nothing serious.
