At least 13 tornadoes tore through the Deep South Tuesday night, according to the National Weather Service. One ripped through Pensacola, with some residents today beginning to pick up the pieces.

The numbers are staggering – some homes along Scenic Road were razed, as the twister touched down and ripped a path through along Interstate-10.

“Our preliminary estimates are that the [tornado’s] track was a path of two miles, from Northpointe Boulevard to Scenic Highway,” said Escambia County spokeswoman Joy Tsubooka.
