Video showed a waterspout moving onshore of the coast in Homosassa, and that same area of rotation continued along a nearly easterly path. This created a narrow damage path starting across a mobile home park near Buzzard Point causing 7 structures with minor damage and 2 structures with major damage.  Several trees were then downed or snapped in the Homosassa Springs Wildlife Park, and snapped power poles, a billboard down, the sail of a gas station blown off, and one business with major damage on US Highway 19 and Grover Cleveland Boulevard before lifting.
