LAKELAND, Fla. — Tropical Storm Nestor hit the panhandle so hard October 18 that tornadoes organized all the way down here in Central Florida.
One of them touched down near Seminole, FL; it damaged a mobile home park without injuries, the National Weather Service reports.
Hours later, another tornado organized in Hillsborough County and ripped into Polk County, damaging at least 50 homes and businesses.
The latter took the roof off of a man’s garage in the Carillon Lakes neighborhood of Lakeland, FL.
As he documented the damage to his home, he turned his camera around to find a herd of cows wandering through the street.
The video, published by Fun in the Sun Floridian, shows about nine cows following their rancher among houses damaged by the 120 mph winds.
The community appeared bemused, the unidentified Lakeland man says that he and his neighbors are thankful no one was hurt.
It’s likely that the violent weather destroyed the rancher’s fences, but a definite reason has not been pinned down at the time of this report.
