Happened yesterday 12 December 2012 during an unusual winter weather disturbance here.
About 90 homes were damaged at Terra Mar Village, a community of
about 200 mobile homes. Five were destroyed and 40 sustained major
damaged at the community between Edgewater and Oak Hill, according to an
estimate by the Volusia Property Appraiser's Office. The storm cost an
estimated $1.7 million in damage.The tornado touched down and
traveled for a mile, from U.S. Highway 1 to the Indian River, cutting a
path of destruction through Terra Mar. Two people suffered minor
scrapes, Volusia County officials said. It lasted only a minute, barely
enough time for people to run for cover, as the speedy funnel cloud
uprooted laurel oak trees, peeled away aluminum roofs and blew through
countless windows and porches.
Tornadoes also struck Birmingham Alabama and Lousiana.
