Officials Confirm Tornado Hit Enterprise

Officials with the Tallahassee office of the National Weather Service have wrapped-up their assessment of Wednesday's Enterprise storm.

Coffee County Emergency Management Director John Tallas has been in contact with the Tallahassee office and Tallas says visual and structural damage indicates a small system made a direct hit at the civic center on Wednesday.

The storm made several touch downs in the surrounding neighborhoods.

Tallas says it was most likely an F1 tornado.

“We were in contact with the national weather service's Tallahassee office, we worked not to over sensationalize, but at the same time assess the weather conditions and we sounded the weather sirens and it all worked well to warn of the tornado," said Tallas.

After the March, 2007 deadly Enterprise tornado, Tallas believes residents do take the weather siren warning system more seriously than ever before.

The total residential damage in Enterprise is estimated at $2.5 million.
