JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Cleanup efforts are underway in the Arlington area after a tornado struck late Thursday afternoon.
The National Weather Service confirms it was an EF2 twister with unconfirmed winds of around 100 miles per hour.
At least one person suffered minor injuries from falling debris, but between 15 and 20 buildings are reportedly damaged.
A lot of the damage is at Shadowood Apartments near the corner of Derringer and Monument roads.
Arlington resident Frank Nosalek said, "It was just a very intense storm."
"It got really still, then all of a sudden the rain got really, really hard, and we went inside," said Arlington resident Roger Willis.
Arlington resident Sandra Beaver said the tornado was like " ... a noise I never heard before. It was whistling."
