A tornado was reported in Naples Saturday that cause damage to cars and trees. No injuries were reported, officials said.
There are no reports of any injuries after authorities say a tornado touched down in southwest Florida as Tropical Storm Debby formed.
A Collier County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman confirmed a tornado touched down Saturday afternoon. The Naples Daily News reports several homes were damaged and tree limbs are down.
Forecasters say there is always a possibility of an isolated tornado as storms form.
Senior hurricane specialist Stacy Stewart with the National Hurricane Center says ``tornadic activity goes up'' because such strong winds are not typical. He says the tornados tend to be quick or short-lived, which is difficult to detect on radar. He recommends that residents ``keep an eye on the sky'' and to be safe.
A tornado warning had been issued for the area.
