A total of six tornadoes touched down on the First Coast as a result of Hurricane Irma, including an EF 2 that tore through condos at Summerhouse Beach Racquet Club in Crescent Beach, Florida early Monday morning.
The property manager and resident, Jon Davis, told First Coast News that four buildings received catastrophic damage from the tornado and another four buildings were left with major damage.
Still taken back at the damage in Crescent Beach. Thankfully everyone is OK and in good spirits.
“I was here and I will not be here again,” Davis said.
Davis, who is from New England,
said he and his wife decided to ride out the storm because they were under the impression they would be safe there during the hurricane. He said the wind howled and “was steady” throughout the night, but at one brief moment, that sound changed.
“As an airplane guy, it sounded like a jet engine,” Davis said. “I mean it was loud. this was just a bit above and beyond.”
During the day, Davis and the two others assessed the damage. They saw debris from the roof spread out throughout the lawn, even a wooden block speared deep into the ground. Metal bars were also found bent from the strong winds.
Residents salvaged what they could,
but some units couldn’t be saved and are scheduled to be bulldozed.
