TORNADO'S WAKE

"We are fortunate no one was killed,'' Pensacola resident Sherman Matthews said Wednesday, the day after a tornado caused significant damage to the area. "I was on the phone with my sister. I heard the trees flying through the air and hitting things." Gov. Rick Scott surveyed the damage Wednesday in Pensacola. The storm also significantly damaged more than 70 homes and 24 apartments, leaving three people with minor injuries. The line of strong storms took a greater toll: Three people were killed in Louisiana and Mississippi. National Weather Service forecaster Don Shepherd told the Pensacola News Journal that more storms could develop next week. The cause? El Niño.
