A strong tornado hit the state of Florida in the United States.

It is reported that thousands of residents lost power and dozens of cars were destroyed.

So far no casualties or injuries have been reported.

The alert is in force for the south of the state, including the city of Miami.

Nearly 13,000 customers are without power in Florida today due to the ravages of the atmospheric phenomenon, whose winds hit north of Miami, according to the PowerOutage.us site that tracks blackouts in the United States.

Damage is widespread in the Palm Beach Gardens area where residents were forced to seek shelter as a result of strong winds that battered the region overnight, The New York Times reported.

There, branches flew dangerously in the wind and trees collapsed on vehicles in the Sanctuary Cove neighborhood of nearby North Palm Beach.

The roof of an apartment building was blown off and damage to houses and cars was also reported, the outlet added.

The National Weather Service reported that the tornado had an estimated wind speed of at least 100 mph.

He limited the report of The New York Times that the United States registers more than a thousand tornadoes a year, more than any other country in the world, since its geography and climate make it particularly susceptible.

The deadliest of these events in recent years occurred in 2011, when a storm swept through Joplin, Missouri, killing more than 150 people.

Last month, in rural Mississippi, a tornado devastated mobile homes, killing at least two dozen.
