PENSACOLA, Fla. — Florida Gov. Rick Scott is expected to travel to Pensacola to view the damage caused by storms that hit the area.
Scott’s office says the governor will be in the Pensacola area Wednesday. A tornado ripped through the city around 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, snapping trees, downing power lines and destroying at least 24 units at The Moorings apartment complex.
The National Weather Service was surveying the damage Wednesday. There have been no reports of injuries there.
A deadly storm system that spawned tornadoes in Gulf Coast states Tuesday night is expected to bring severe weather to the Carolinas by Wednesday afternoon.
Authorities say the Tuesday storms mangled trailers at an RV park, ripped roofs from buildings and killed at least three people in Louisiana and Mississippi.
Police say two people were killed at a recreational vehicle park in the Louisiana town of Convent. St. James Parish Sheriff Willy Martin says authorities were working into the early morning to look for people possibly trapped under the debris there.
The Wednesday forecast for the Carolinas calls for possible flash flooding and severe thunderstorms, including damaging winds, hail and isolated tornadoes.
