DAMAGE REPORTED AFTER HURRICANE IAN TRIGGERS DOZENS OF TORNADO WARNINGS
Palm Beach County firefighters said a woman called 911 around 9:15 p.m. after a roof collapse left her stuck in the bathroom of a building in the Kings Point neighborhood located in western DelrayThe Sat. Arriving crews on the scene said they encountered a lot of wind and damage.
Cars were found toppled, moved and rolled upside down. Roofs were blown off of several top-floor apartments, and windows of buildings and cars were blown out. Trees were also snapped and blown into buildings, as firefighters cut through many downed trees to open roads.
Firefighters searched the buildings for trapped residents across four separate areas with damage. High-water vehicles were eventually used to move large numbers of people quickly with help from Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office deputies.
The American Red Cross is helping with temporary housing.
NOAA’s Storm Prediction Center said there were 11 tornado reports in Broward, Palm Beach, Miami-Dade and Monroe counties.
