Palm Beach County Fire Rescue said a tornado touched down near Parry Village Trailer Park in suburban Boynton Beach near the 4000 block of 88th Court South around 6 p.m. Sunday.

The porch of one house was torn apart. Twisted sheets of metal remain. Debris from it was in the road. 

"I couldn’t cross the road because all this debris was in the road from that guy’s trailer," said David Armstrong, who lives in Parry Village.

A house across the street had windows blown out.

"The antenna got ripped of his pole and all the roof panels from this guy’s trailer was hanging on the power lines on that side of the road," Armstrong said.

First responders went through the neighborhood and checked for possible injuries, but they ended up with no reports of injuries.

Armstrong said nobody was at home in either of the houses with more significant damage.

Fire rescue reported several other homes with minor damage.

The power went out for a short time, but FPL got it turned back on around 7 p.m.
