Default Tornado hit Casselberry yesterday?

Did anyone hear about this? They said on the news it damaged several houses. I don't live too far from there, but there was nothing like that in my area.

My weather radio went off twice last night, once about 11:30 and a second time around 12:15, both for tornado warnings. The wind was howling around my house.

It's Lake Drive, not Lake Street and there are a lot of trailers there. Why do tornadoes like mobile homes.

I wonder if the amount of metal somehow attracts the static electricity in the storm? They do seem to take direct aim at mobile homes.

I got the street names out of an article on cfnews13 or Wesh, so I apologize for the inaccuracy.
