MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. – Families living in one southwest Miami-Dade neighborhood say they’re convinced a tornado touched down.
Teresita Verdaguer told Local 10 News she and her family heard the roaring winds, and saw flying debris, which was spread out along Southwest Fourth Street Tuesday evening.
“I told my daughter, ‘Come downstairs because there’s a tornado.’ I knew right away,” Verdaguer said.
Local 10 News cameras captured downed light posts, downed power lines and heavy tree branches blocking roads.
Crews with FPL responded to a dangerous situation, as many homes in the area were left without power.
It’s unclear when power will be restored to the area.
By Wednesday morning, more than 20,000 FPL customers were without power in Miami-Dade and Broward counties.
