Possible tornado touches down in Hobe Sound

Hobe Sound, FL (WLFX) Residents are picking up the pieces, after a massive storm touched down before 9 a.m. Saturday.

Residents believe a tornado caused severe damage throughout the Ridgeway Mobile Home Park that is east of U.S. 1.

"I didn't hear any noise," said neighbor Russell DanTinne. "I turn around, and I seen it coming."

"I was scared, I was shaking, the lights were going on and off," recalled Linda Siebe.

The massive winds dissipated as quickly as they appeared. Leaving residents shaken, and their neighborhood torn apart.

"It just trashed this area," said Raymond Skudera, a Ridgeway Resident. "It vibrated the house. Only lasted like two seconds and all of this was done."
