County...

NWS meteorologists have confirmed a tornado developed and moved
ashore in the Southside area of Duval County just south of River
Oaks Park around 552 PM on April 25th.

A severe thunderstorm pushed ESE through the jax Metro area at about
50 mph and intensified as it moved over the St. Johns River.
Radar imagery indicates a brief tight rotation developed on the north
end of a developing downburst.

The tornado moved ashore and pushed just south of Hendricks
elementary snapping trees and powerlines. Several structures were
impacted by falling trees and limbs. Initial damage was tightly
clustered with a path of approximately 200 yards. As the tornado
crossed Phillips Highway several businesses sustained roof damage.
Trailers in the Pine Oaks Mobile Home Park were damaged as well.

The tornado began to turn more to the southeast as it passed I-95 and
widened to 350 yards as it neared Englewood High School.
At about 5:58 PM the tornado began to weaken and dissipate. A wide
swath of straight line winds continued to cause damage further to
the south and east of the path until shortly after 6 PM. The path
width varied from 200-350 yards along a 3.45 mile path. The tornado
lasted 5 or 6 minutes with the maximum wind speeds reaching 104 mph.
