ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- A possible tornado hit a neighborhood west of Tropicana Field, downing trees onto houses.

At least two homes were damaged in the area of 11th Avenue and 43rd Street South, according to St. Petersburg Fire Rescue. Luckily, no one was hurt.

"It got dark all of a sudden and really windy, and then I heard a crack and a big boom," homeowner Verlett Smith said. He later realized a tree hit a power line as it came crashing down.

A tornado warning was in effect for southern Pinellas County before a strong line of thunderstorms eventually rolled through after 3 p.m.
