EDGEWATER, Fla. (AP) - A tornado reportedly touched down over water and briefly came onto land in Volusia County but caused little damage.
Edgewater fire-rescue officials say the waterspout formed over the Indian River just after noon Wednesday. It blew ashore between a marina and an apartment complex, damaging the roof of one residence before lifting a small boat off its trailer and dropping it onto a pickup truck. The funnel cloud continued northwest, ripping flashing from another home. No injuries were reported.
The National Weather Service in Melbourne confirmed a report of a funnel cloud being sighted and issued a tornado warning for the region later Wednesday afternoon.
