Officials said one of the apparent twisters swept through the rural town of Century, which is about 45 miles north of Pensacola.

They said at least 10 homes were destroyed, but no serious injuries were reported.

The tornadoes were part of a large winter storm system that's hitting the eastern U.S. with snow, sleet, strong winds and rain.

The National Weather Service says a crew will be out to survey the damage on Tuesday.
