'Possible tornado' damages homes, downs power lines in Brevard County

As storms rained down across Central Florida on Wednesday, residents in Brevard County braced themselves after a possible tornado touched down in the evening. 

According to the Brevard County Emergency Management Office, a possible tornado may have touched down in the area of South Patrick Shores around 5:30 p.m.

Photos taken in the area show fences destroyed along with debris scattered in front of residential homes.  It is still unclear if this was, in fact, a tornado, but one resident who has lived in the neighborhood for years said he hasn't seen anything quite like this. 

"I thought this was my flat roof on a new addition that I put on the house, but my granddaughter looked up with a ladder, and she said it's not my roof, it's not my roof, it's somebody else's roof," said James Jenkins, Satellite Beach resident.

On Wednesday afternoon, the National Weather Service issued a tornado warning for Brevard County.
