Watch video: Tent collapses at Florida State Fair



Sudden strong winds at the Florida State Fair in Tampa Friday sent people running and screaming in fear of a possible tornado. St. Petersburg Times videographer Jack Rowland was trapped in a food tent when the severe weather hit.

A tent collapsed and 13 people were injured and transported to the hospital, fair spokesman Paul Wilson said.  Two people received the most serious injuries and were taken to St. Joseph's and Brandon Regional hospitals. The other 11 patients had minor injuries.
