Tornado Touches Down Over River in Volusia County, Florida

EDGEWATER, Fla. (AP) - A tornado reportedly touched down over
water and briefly came onto land in Volusia County but caused
little damage.

Edgewater fire-rescue officials say the waterspout formed over
the Indian River just after noon Wednesday.

It blew ashore between a marina and an apartment complex, damaging the roof of one residence before lifting a small boat off its trailer and dropping it onto a pickup truck.

The funnel cloud continued northwest, ripping flashing from another home. No injuries were reported.

The National Weather Service in Melbourne confirmed a report of
a funnel cloud being sighted and issued a tornado warning for the
region later Wednesday afternoon.
