EF-1 tornado touched down in Coconut Creek

EF-1 tornado touched down in Coconut Creek

Property Claim LawIt is believed a tornado touched down in several areas throughout Broward County January 27, 2016, causing significant damage. While each of the touchdowns lasted only 10 or 15 seconds, it was plenty of time to cause several car accidents, tear off roofs, overturn vehicles and cause injuries to people in the area.

The first of the three touchdowns came on Broward College’s North Campus where students heard loud banging and severe rain around 9:30 am. Fortunately, there were no injuries reported at the college, as class was in session and students were safely indoors. In response, the college followed emergency protocol, alerting students and canceling daytime classes to allow for clean up.

On the turnpike, near Sample Road, there were several car accidents and a semi trucks that were flipped over due to the nearly 100 miles per hour winds. The tornado also made its way through Pompano Beach where it caused significant structural damage to at least one industrial building and left some residents fearing for their lives.

The third and final touchdown lasted no more than 15 seconds, but still ripped shingles from the roof of the Wyndmoor Retirement Community and uprooted tress before dissipating. The American Red Cross has been dispatched and is helping residents of the community.

During tornados and other severe weather, it is recommended, to stay inside and near an internal room to avoid and debris that may be flying due to the heavy winds.
