Roads closed, damage around the golf club


A Florida golf club was at the center of a horrific storm this week as the following counties were all under tornado watch: Sarasota, Collier, Lee, Charlotte, Glades, Hendry, Desoto and Highlands counties, according to the National Weather Service.

The wind blew up to 40 mph, while storms brought frequent lightning, hail and localized flooding.

Most of the damage centered around the Eagle Ridge Golf Club in Fort Myers, where the residences surrounding the golf course sustained significant damage and in some cases required full roof repairs.

While some residents and workers immediately began the clean-up process, others thought it was a perfect day to do 18 holes.

Here are some photos of the area shortly after the storm subsided.
