A piece of a branch snapped and crushed a car, the passenger window shattered and the door dented.

At Graziano’s a tornado snapped a 30 year old tree on top of two cars.

“Right here was a fence and the tornado push through and threw it over there and all those dumpsters over there are supposed to be over here they’re ours push them over there like Legos,” said owner Robert Graziano.

Neighbors say it lasted only seconds and many didn’t even have any time to take shelter.

“First thing that comes to mind is that when you see tornado warnings you need to have those warnings because everyone was like tornado Miami it doesn’t happen and it happened.”
