What a Day for Wild Weather in Jacksonville, FL! At our office, we collected 5.2 inches of rain in under 2 hours! And if that weren’t amazing enough, just a few miles down the road, a quarter-mile wide EF2 tornado touched down and caused extensive damage. Tornadoes and waterspouts are somewhat common to our area, with one or two a year, but it is extremely rare for an EF2 tornado to hit northern Florida. Thankfully, no one was killed or seriously injured, and the Tornado was only on the ground for a half mile or less, but as you can see from the photos, it caused quite the damage. Be sure to look at the gallery to see the 2×4 imbedded half way through a second story wall.
However, the day was not entirely marked by destruction. As I was headed home after shooting the aftermath of the tornado, I saw this amazing afterglow from the sunset. Amazing! Enjoy the photos – and of course, feel free to download as HD desktop wallpaper below!
