CLEARWATER, Fla. (WFLA) — A Clearwater Beach woman was uninjured when a wall collapsed on her as she slept through a tornado early Thursday morning.
WFLA Photojournalist Malik Parler was surveying the damage in North Clearwater Beach alongside first responders when a woman came forward to share that part of her home had collapsed amidst the storm.
“The side of my house blew off,” the woman said in a calm fashion, adding that part of her roof was missing over her back-facing bedroom.
She told Parler she awoke covered in glass and other debris, but was otherwise uninjured.
The damage was sustained when a tornado touched down in North Clearwater Beach as severe storms moved into the area overnight.
So far, no injuries have been reported.
