'Tearing and ripping': Florida neighborhood damaged during Sunday's storms

Several homes in a Brevard County neighborhood were damaged Sunday after an EF0 tornado briefly touched down as strong storms moved across the area. The National Weather Service confirmed the damage was caused by a tornado after surveying the neighborhood on Monday. 

"All I heard was metal just tearing and ripping," said Tim Lystlund, who lives in the River Grove Mobile Home Park.

"That's when I watched the roof come off, the screen porch go, my carport go," he said.

One home's roof appeared to be partially missing and the insulation exposed, while others had siding wrapped around trees or crumpled on the ground. The carport at one home had collapsed.

Citing preliminary findings, the NWS estimated that the tornado traveled 0.3 miles with 60-70 mph maximum winds.

However, Lystlund said he believes he saw two funnel clouds, noting that both did not reach the ground. 

"Been through countless hurricanes, countless hurricanes, never, ever in my life, seen anything that quick, that fast, with that much destruction," he said.

On Sunday, a spokesperson for Brevard County Fire Rescue said 30-35 homes were damaged during a "significant wind event."
