Seminole, Florida: Possible tornado damages several homes

The fire department learned of the incident shortly after 1 a.m. ET, Meegan said. He said the lanais on a couple of homes were destroyed, a few rooftop air handlers were lost and a couple of boats docked along the waterway were damaged.

Meegan described the damage to the single-story, attached condos as mostly structural with all the homes remaining intact. He said no one was injured.

An intense cluster of storms moved on shore near Seminole around 1 a.m., producing lightning and what the Storm Prediction Center called a “potential tornado,” said CNN meteorologist Haley Brink.

The storms are expected to continue across the state Sunday morning and into the daytime hours with Tampa, Orlando and Daytona Beach facing a slight risk of severe storms. Seminole is located just southwest of Tampa, along the Intercoastal Waterway.
