BROWARD COUNTY, Fla. – Several tornadoes touched down in parts of Broward County on Tuesday night.
Authorities confirmed that two tornadoes hit near North Perry Airport in Pembroke Pines.
Several planes were flipped over and damaged, as were some aircraft hangers.
Additionally, trees were down, and power outages were reported in the general area of Johnson Street and University Drive, according to Pembroke Pines Fire Rescue.
PPFR crews responded and worked to clear the trees.
Damage could also be seen in the parking lot of a Publix near Sheridan Street and Douglas Road.
In the Pasadena Lakes neighborhood of Pembroke Pines, a fast moving twister tumbled a massive tree, which came down right along Robert Brun’s home.
“It’s across the road, thankfully it didn’t come on my boat,” Brun said. “My fence just blew off like it wasn’t there and my front yard just looks like a war zone.”
The community appeared to be hit hard by the tornado that pushed through Tuesday evening.
One moment residents were getting alerts on their phone, and the next the wind whipped up outside their windows.
“Very scary,” said resident Lisa Orozco. “The noise, it was like a howling sound- it was. I sheltered in the restroom with the kids and the dog and cat.”
Over at Pasadena Lakes Elementary School, power crews were busy repairing the damage there. Debris was spotted all along the school grounds, including downed trees and at least one power pole that appeared to be no match for the tornado.
