Early Wednesday morning, neighbors helped each other in the Mainlands of Tamarac community, picking up roofing and siding tossed around by Tuesday afternoon's tornado.
"It's crazy. I have never seen anything like it," said Basil Fairlough, as he picked up siding off a neighbor's lawn.

Fairlough drove through the community at the Mainlands of Tamarac, picking up scrap metal, what used to be the roofing and siding on his neighbors' homes before the tornado.
Six homes were damaged. One of the damaged homes, where Lisa Baldwin and her daughter live, is uninhabitable. The American Red Cross is housing Baldwin until Friday.
"My whole life is a lot to deal with right now. What did I do?" Baldwin told local 10's Neki Mohan .
City officials are helping with the cleanup. They said there is only personal property damage, so they could not assess a dollar amount to the storm damage.
The Broward Sheriff's Office said it received several reports of tornado damage in the area near McNab Road and Brookwood Boulevard. Police said there were reports of traffic lights out in the area, as well as some flooding, downed tree limbs and roof damage at some homes.
Mike Jachles, of BSO, said deputies spotted funnel clouds in the area and said they touched down just south of McNab Road and then again to the north of McNab. The deputies said the storm appeared to move from the south to the northeast, moving over McNab Road.
Jachles said there were tree limbs down in a subdivision north of McNab Road and 70th Avenue. In that neighborhood, Jachles said there were windows blown out, benches overturned and some aluminum material similar to that used in shutters wrapped around a utility pole.
A witness who was in that area said it started raining and became very windy, and then she began to see things flying through the air.
Several angles of Tuesday's twister were caught on camera by Local 10 viewers.
A viewer told Local 10 that she saw a funnel cloud coming down from a large, black cloud. She said the funnel cloud went down and then retreated, then repeated the process.
"It was scary. It really was," she said.
Although Margate and North Lauderdale were hit by the storm, most of the damage was in the Tamarac community. Crews fished debris out of a lake there Wednesday morning.
"Our public works crews were on the scene last night, removing debris from the roads to keep the roads open and available," said Tamarac City Manager Michael Cernech.
For professional director Adrian Allen and photographer Jude Charles, who own Steadyimage Video and Film, the tornado was an opportunity to shoot intense video.
"I was actually standing here and I realized that the clouds were kind of spinning," Allen said.
Charles grabbed his video camera and ran to the back patio of Allen's Fort Lauderdale house.
As rain started falling, Allen said he hoisted a piece of cardboard over Charles' head so he could capture the perfect shots.
"And before you knew it, it started forming into a spout. We actually filmed it from beginning to end," Allen said.
Viewer Laura Duplessy was driving home on McNab Road in Tamarac when she said she saw the funnel cloud in front of her.
"It was fairly scary," she said.
Duplessy shot several photos with her cellphone.
"From a big cloud, just turning and turning until it became skinnier and skinnier and then bigger at the top," she said.
Duplessy never thought she would witness a tornado in South Florida.
"I never thought I would ever see one down here. Hurricanes, normal; tornadoes, not so much, so it was pretty scary," she said.
No injuries were reported.
