Deadly thunderstorms and strong winds have left a path of destruction following a week of severe weather in Florida.

Cities like Jacksonville and Tallahassee saw multiple thunderstorms over this past week, with residents sharing pictures of downed trees and damage to their homes and cars.

Severe thunderstorms and tornadoes brought havoc to the Southeast this week, where at least four people died as a result. In Florida, one woman was killed after a tree fell on her home in Leon County, according to the Leon County Sheriff’s Office.

Tornadoes are suspected to have hit three Florida counties: Walton, Gadsden and Leon. The National Weather Service field office in Tallahassee sent crews to survey the damage Saturday.
