TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Officials are rummaging through damaged homes after severe thunderstorms and at least two tornadoes hit northern Florida this morning.
Police say about 20 homes in the northern part of Lake City were damaged. Only two minor injuries were reported in the area about 110 miles east of Tallahassee. Officials aren't sure if that damage was from a tornado.
State emergency officials say the tornadoes touched down in the tiny coastal town of Keaton Beach on the Gulf of Mexico and Capitola, a neighborhood on the outskirts of Tallahassee. In Capitola, a handful of homes were destroyed, while others were damaged.
In Baker County northwest of Jacksonville, Sheriff Joey Dobson reports that a brick home was destroyed. But there were no reports of injuries.
