The largest damage was inflicted upon the area of Broward College where cars were flipped over and tossed in the air while several rooftops were torn off the local houses. In the nearby neighborhood, a twister knocked over a truck and uprooted numerous trees.

Severe storm and flood warnings have been put in place throughout January 28.
