Tornado destroyed 15 aircraft in Florida, prior to the arrival of Hurricane “Ian”

The path of Hurricane Ian keeps the population of the United States, especially those residing in Florida, on alert. For days, authorities began to warn about the strength of the natural phenomenon and mobilized families in vulnerable localities to keep them safe.

“This is going to have a catastrophic impact, and not only where we are going to see the storm make landfall, but we’re also very concerned about all the flooding inland because it’s going to bring a lot of rain, and it’s going to move slowly,” said Deanne Criswell, Federal Emergency Management Agency administrator.

She insisted that the concern is about flooding and the consequences for the population that could spend days suffering from the remnants of Ian. As reported in American Post News, it is worth mentioning that Hurricane Ian had impacted Florida as a category 5.

In the last hours, impressive images of a tornado passing through the North Perry Airport in Pembroke Pines have alerted residents after at least 15 aircraft were damaged and some others overturned due to the generated phenomenon by the hurricane. No injuries were reported, and the airport had to stop operations to assess conditions.

Tornadoes impacted Florida before the hurricane.

Tornadoes associated with the winds produced by Hurricane Ian hit southeastern Florida.

Several tornadoes associated with the winds produced by Hurricane Ian hit southeast Florida, leaving at least two people injured and some airplanes destroyed, as a foretaste of “catastrophic” scenarios.

The National Weather Service (NWS) confirmed that one of the tornadoes tore through more than 55 communities in the city of Kings Point in Palm Beach County Tuesday night, where two people were hospitalized for injuries, according to local media.

About 30 people were evacuated from the neighborhood after a building in Kings Point was deemed unsafe due to tornado damage, Local 10 reported. The media outlet added that the medical condition of the people hospitalized is not known at this time.

Tornadoes are violently spinning air columns extending from a thunderstorm to the ground. Tornadoes can destroy buildings, flip cars, and create deadly wind-driven debris.
