Watch: Tornado crosses intersection in Spring Hill

An apparent tornado crossed over a busy intersection in Spring Hill early Friday evening. 

Savannah Smiley, on Facebook, was stopped behind the intersection and recorded video of the tornado. 

In her video, an SUV can be seen narrowly escaping the tornado's path. 

FOX 13's Paul Dellegatto said the video was proof enough to confirm a tornado touchdown. 

The video shows the tornado quickly plowing across the intersection of Landover Boulevard and Elgin Boulevard, just east of Weeki Wachee in Spring Hill. 

Reports of damage in the area were widespread after severe weather moved through the area.
