Bryan Snare captured this photo of Saturday's tornado just east of Fincastle from his home.

What the National Weather Service described as a “confirmed tornado” triggered a series of warnings for Botetourt County early Saturday evening.

Several images and videos posted to social media showed the tornado just east of Fincastle.

Fire-EMS Chief Jason Ferguson said there were no emergency calls or reports of damage by mid-evening.

Storm chasers on social media had also posted images and video of a rotating storm in Bedford County earlier in the afternoon, but no tornado was reported there.
