Inspectors Headed to Site of Tornado Damage in Florida Panhandle

MOLINO, Fla. (AP) - Two inspectors are headed to Escambia County to survey damage from a tornado that destroyed four homes.

No injuries were reported, but another 60 homes, businesses and storage buildings were damaged.

Another two homes were damaged in neighboring Santa Rosa County. Trees also fell on two cars.

Officials say they might know more about the strength of the storm's winds later today.

A tornado watch for areas just west and north of Jacksonville expired at 10 a.m. but forecasters say there's still a slight risk of severe weather to areas south of Jacksonville later this afternoon.
