Tropical Storm Andrea is quickly moving up the East Coast, with strong winds, heavy rains and possible flooding through Georgia and the Carolinas.
A confirmed tornado touched down in Loxahatchee, Fla. The twister damaged buildings, overturned boats, and snapped trees in half.
"I heard it start to rumble, so I grabbed my daughter and got in my bathroom closet," Palm Beach resident Kristin Ebel told West Palm Beach television station WPBF. "I was just praying the roof wouldn't come off. We didn't have much time to think because it happened so fast."
One man says he's fortunate he was only slightly injured when the tornado lifted him up and dropped him into a nearby pool.
The National Weather Service says Andrea could cause isolated flooding and storm surges over the next two days.
