Mayport, Fla.-- Naval Station Mayport is cleaning up after some buildings were damaged during Tropical Storm Andrea.
Viewer pictures show torn roofs on buildings at Naval Station Mayport. Debris is on the ground. Officials tell Action News it could've been from the winds. But moments before that damage, a Jax Beach lifeguard caught some video of the storm.
It's hard to see but lifeguard Jason Caffey says they were patrolling when a possible tornado or water spout was right over them. "It was a water spout coming right at us, half on the sand, half in the water. Before we knew it it was right over us," said Caffey.
After it passed, the strong winds Andrea left behind couldn't keep people out of the water. One lifeguard is just glad the storm didn't pack a bigger punch. "I've never seen anything like it. I've seen water spouts but to be under it, quite an experience," said Caffey.
There were no injuries reported and no damaged ships at Naval Station Mayport.
