BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. (WSVN) — Authorities said a tornado touched down in Boynton Beach during Tropical Storm Philippe, Saturday, causing some damage at a trailer park.
The storm ripped apart the roof of one mobile home and blew out windows on another. Both were unoccupied.
Area resident Mike Schmeltzer described the strong gusts. “I could hear the winds were really starting to pick up, and when I looked down this way towards the west, I could just see some stuff flying through the air,” he said.
Several other homes had minor damage. The power went out for a short time, but Florida Power and Light crews quickly restored it.
No injuries were reported.
A tower camera captured the funnel cloud on Saturday.
The inclement weather, caused by the since-dissolved Philippe, also spawned as tornado that, officials said, touched down in Southwest Miami-Dade, Saturday afternoon, causing extensive damage to a bowling alley.
