Storm knocks down tree limbs, moves vehicles in Boynton Beach

A storm caused minor damage in Boynton Beach Thursday afternoon.

Winds knocked down tree limbs and moved cars just west of I-95 on Woolbright Road.

Cleanup crews were dispatched and quickly began cleaning up branches that littered the road and blocked drivers.

Customers at a nearby Lowe's parking lot reported hearing a crash and said they discovered a few vehicles had been moved.

"And all of a sudden we heard the big crash and wind started coming in through the store, everything was flying around and then the manager went to the front door and said "everybody into the training room.' It's in the back of the store so we all went there and waited for things to calm down," Lowe's employee Lorraine Markey said.

There were no reported injuries.

The National Weather Service had issued a tornado warning around 4:26 when Doppler radar indicated a severe thunderstorm capable of producing a tornado.
