Tornado Warning As Storm Rips Through Palm Coast, Florida

Severe weather, including a possible tornado, caused “major damage” to several homes and brought down power lines in Palm Coast, Florida, late Saturday, officials said.

One resident reportedly witnessed the roof being ripped from his home, according to Cindy Lane, spokeswoman for the City of Palm Coast.

A tornado warning was issued, but there were no reports of injuries.

More than two thousand homes were still without power as of 11pET.

The National Weather Service has informed the town that they are sending two meteorologists to the scene Sunday to confirm the touchdown of a tornado.

Six or seven homes sustained "major damage" in the severe storm, which struck at about 7 p.m. ET Saturday, Lane said.

A holiday parade in the city was canceled just before the possible tornado struck.

There are reports of debris in most areas as well as trees and power lines down in much of the local area, according to NBC affiliate in Orlando, WESH.

Local resident Meredith Hollister told WESH that residents got a tornado warning on her cellphone, and they took cover in the bathroom until the storm passed.
