PALM COAST, Fla. -- Cleanup is underway in Flagler County after a possible tornado touched down Saturday. Leaders say there are at least six homes that are considered a total loss.

Emergency vehicles have roads blocked off in the area of Bridgehaven Drive and Palm Coast Parkway.

According to Palm Coast's communication director, Cindy Lane, the worst damage was in an area known as section B.

"We do have significant damage," said Lane. "We have roofs off of houses, we have roadways that are impassable, trees down significant power lines down."

Lane says the possible tornado touched down around 7 p.m. when most of the city's leaders were at a holiday parade at the city's town center.

Margaret Ibanez who lives on Bridgehaven Drive said her house shook as the storm rolled through.

"We've lost a lot of trees in the back," said Ibanez. "Our nativity set that we have in front of the house is still there but everything else is in the back in the lake, like the snow man and all our Christmas decorations."

Flagler County officials have set up a website where people can check for the latest updates. County officials are reporting there are about 1,863 homes still without power. Florida Power & Light crews are in town trying to restore power.

According to Lane, two National Weather Service meteorologists are expected to assess the damage tomorrow morning.

No injuries have been reported.
