Two tornadoes ripped through Charlotte County Wednesday afternoon as severe storms moved through the region.

The first, an EF-0, was reported in the Murdock area, the county’s emergency management department said. Downed tree limbs and damaged light posts, windows and buildings were reported, according to the National Weather Service’s Storm Prediction Center.

A second tornado, an EF-1 with winds up to 97 mph, touched down in the Deep Creek area, where similar damage was reported. Homes in the area of Rampart and Nuremberg boulevards, and Banff Lane and Paraclete Road were damaged, officials said.

“No injuries have been reported, but the storms caused widespread structural damage to homes in the Deep Creek community,” the emergency management department said in a statement. “A total of 34 homes were damaged in Deep Creek, six of which have been deemed uninhabitable by the Charlotte County Building Official.”

Downed power lines and tree limbs resulted in power being shut off to the Deep Creek area. More than 4,200 people were without power Wednesday afternoon. Officials expect power to be restored by Wednesday night.
