A NWS survey crew found that a tornado briefly touched down in Pinellas County on the evening of the 6th, causing a narrow path of damage moving east-northeast across the county.  Most of the damage was found to be at treetop levels, but some trees were knocked down or uprooted, landing on homes.  Additionally, numerous carports were ripped off of homes.  A crane also collapsed, landing on Interstate 275, temporarily closing the highway.  One injury was reported with the damage due to a tree landing on a home.
