The National Weather Service confirmed an EF1 tornado touched down in Coconut Creek and traveled for 2.3 miles.

The tornado had wins up to 100 miles per hour according to meteorologists.

Multiple cars were damaged and overturned along the Florida Turnpike.

Wind pushed a semi truck onto its side.

And at Broward College, cars were flipped over in the parking lot from the twister.

"I couldn't believe it. I was in shock. Things you see from a movie. Just something I am going to take serious next time," a student said after finding his pickup truck on its side.

 

Students and staff said they heard the wind and the power went out before the tornado hit.

"It was chaos for a few minutes. All the teachers were outside making sure everyone was inside and stuff," student Ryan Cruz said.

Fire rescue officials say no one was seriously injured.

Broward College canceled their day classes while crews cleaned up from the twister.
