Tornado destroys houses and takes away cars in Florida. Fort Myers and Naples.
The National Weather Service confirmed that a tornado struck southwest Florida on Sunday. The Florida Highway Patrol reported that a large tornado crossed Interstate 75 near Naples, causing a semi-truck to overturn. Minor injuries were reported. Florida Power and Light reported that about 16,000 customers in southwest Florida were without power. Lee County firefighters told that 20 homes were destroyed at the Tropicana Mobile Home Resort and one person was injured. The tornado was part of a dangerous winter storm combining high winds and ice that was sweeping through parts of the U.S. Southeast on Sunday, knocking out power, felling trees and fences and coating roads with a treacherous frigid glaze. By mid-morning, residents across Southwest Florida were taking shelter and heeding multiple tornado warnings stretching from north Collier County and across the gulf coast in Lee County and beyond. The morning’s storms caused damage at a marina and mobile home park in Charlotte County, and authorities there opened a shelter for those displaced because of damage to their homes. Charlotte County government tweeted that in the Village of Holiday Lakes, several homes sustained damage and some residents were displaced, but there were no injuries. Charlotte Fire & EMS also responded to damage off Gasparilla Road. The Gasparilla Marina sustained some damage – the county displayed a photo of a boat overturned on a dock – and the Gasparilla Mobile Estates neighborhood next door saw some structures with roof, carport, porch and other damage.
