Cleanup begins after tornado touches down in Merritt Island
MERRITT ISLAND, Fla. (FOX 35 WOFL) - Rain invaded Central Florida on Monday, as low pressure from the south brought tropical moisture to Florida. With that, came a tornado in Brevard County.
The cleanup process for the tornado has begun this Tuesday morning, as debris is scattered throughout a Merritt Island neighborhood. Fox 35's Amanda McKenzie visited the neighborhood, where she saw a stack of metal and screening mangled after being blown several houses down.
Neighbors told McKenzie that the tornado sounded like a roaring train coming through, even though it happened rather quickly.
They went on to say that they are used to this kind of storm damage. The neighborhood is located right around the Banana River area, with water on both sides. They have had damage in the past from Hurricane Matthew and Hurricane Irma.
Rain continues to invade Central Florida on Tuesday and is expected to continue throughout the week and into the weekend.
