An EF-1 tornado packing winds of up to 90 mph tore through two Marion County subdivisions Monday, damaging dozens of homes and ripping up trees.

The National Weather Service out of Jacksonville confirmed the storm Tuesday.

More than 60 homes in the Oak Run and Palm Cay subdivisions, near Ocala, were damaged.

The cleanup is now underway after huge trees were uprooted and power lines were ripped apart.

No injuries have been reported, officials said, though there were some close calls.

Barbara Symanski was looking through her den window when a tree came crashing through her living room.

“It was raining so hard she didn’t think the gutters were working then she heard the freight train it sounds like four locomotives going through,” said Jim Symanski.

After removing the tree from inside the home late Monday night, crews worked Tuesday to pile debris outside the home which was split in two.

The damage to the Oak Run home was the most severe of the 60 homes affected, though several people in the subdivision and neighboring Palm Cay had close calls.

Trees crashed through cars and ripped the roof off a home.

"The porch was behind the house," said Joe Casper. "I seen the tree and that’s when the living room ceiling started to cave in."

After getting a look at the damage officials quickly determined an EF-1 Tornado left a path of twisted debris a half-mile long.

“Straight line winds can be just as damaging as tornadoes and they push everything in one direction," said News 13 meteorologist Jamie Martin. "Everything from trees to debris lays out in that path. However when you are looking at tornadic winds that twist, you are going to see the debris going in different directions.”

Tree trimmers' number one priority Tuesday was to make sure the tornado, which left so many branches dangling precariously, didn’t hurt anyone.

“We aren’t just trying to do storm work, we are trying to make homes themselves safe,” said Tim Adelberger with Always Trimming Tree Service.

The Emergency Management Director said seven families are out of their homes, which have been condemned. All plan to rebuild, including the Symanskis who consider themselves very lucky to have survived.
