Note to readers: Delivery of N&R delayed / April 15, 2018
The print edition of the News & Record will be delayed this morning after the Lynchburg press operation that produces the paper was knocked out of commission Sunday night by a storm that raged through North Carolina and portions of Virginia, knocking out power to thousands and spawning what appeared to be multiple tornados.

The News & Record is printed by the Lynchburg News & Advance. The Lynchburg daily was left in the dark by the fast-moving storm, which also knocked down trees and caused unknown damage in Halifax County Sunday night.

Today’s edition of the N&R will be delivered to newsstands and post offices this morning, but the latter delivery will come too late to make the day’s mail to subscriber households. Some readers with post office boxes may receive their copies of the paper this afternoon.

The impact of the storm in Greensboro, N.C., Danville and Lynchburg was severe. Weather spotters captured video of funnel clouds in Greensboro, and EMS workers in Lynchburg reported that the storm flipped over vehicles and damaged a number of structures. The National Weather Service in Blacksburg reported that a radar-confirmed tornado moved over Blairs shortly after 6 p.m. on Sunday.

Appalachian Power reported 14,000 Lynchburg-area customers were without power Sunday at 9 p.m. — the city’s daily paper among them.

In the wake of the storm, the News & Advance press operation worked to get numerous newspapers — including outside customers such as the News & Record, as well as the company’s sister dailies in Danville and Charlottesville — printed. The News & Record was rerouted to a sister press operation in Winston-Salem, N.C. for printing early Monday morning.
