National Weather Service Melbourne conducted a damage survey on January 6, 2020 and confirmed an EF-0 tornado in Okahumpka. Peak winds were estimated between 65 and 75 mph, along a discontinuous 2.37 mile long and 175 yard wide path. The tornado generally moved northeast beginning just west of the Florida Turnpike near mile marker 295, crossing mostly wooded areas, Debbie Road, and the western side of the Holiday RV Village before dissipating.
Preliminary damage estimates indicate significant roof damage to 3 to 5 mobile homes, one large oak tree was toppled, and numerous large branches of weak/old trees downed. One resident received minor injuries when a tree branch came through the roof of his manufactured home at the RV Village. The individual self transported to the hospital for treatment of a minor cut to his head.
