Sarasota public adjusters and residents were ill-prepared for the worst this weekend as an EF2 (Enhanced Fujita Scale) storm with winds reaching 132 mph tore through the county. With a stretch as wide as 350 yards, the massive tornado blasted through Siesta Key along the Gulf of Mexico, claiming two lives, injuring 10, and damaging dozens of homes early Sunday morning.
According to the National Weather Service, an EF2 tornado is classified as a strong twister and wreaks havoc in its pathways. Although Sarasota Fire Rescue worked diligently in order to carry out multiple rescues throughout the Sarasota area, the American Red Cross was able to lend a helping hand for those whose residences are uninhabitable. Fire fighters, police, and Sarasota public adjusters have been contacted in order to assess the scale of the damage.
