NWS: Tornado touches down near Palmetto, homes damaged

Posted: Updated:

The tornado damaged several mobile homes in the area of 10th St. SW and 28th Ave. W. in the Tropic Isles Mobile Home Park, in Palmetto.

John Kadlick says he was watching TV when "the roof just blew off."

A roof landed on nearby power lines, knocking out power to roughly 100 homes. Utility crews were working to restore power to those impacted by the storm's damage.

A number of viewers reported seeing a funnel cloud near the Bradenton area. If it is safe to do so, please email any photos to Sendit@wfla.com.
