ZEPHYRHILLS, Fla. (AP) - Officials say high winds tore the roofs off of at least four mobile homes as storms crossed the Tampa Bay area.

Pasco County Emergency Management officials said in a news release that winds were between 40 and 60 miles per hour as the storm passed between Zephyrhills and Dade City early Friday morning.

Spokesman Doug Tobin said in a news release that at least 13 mobile homes were damaged at Country Aire Estates. Winds also tore the screened-in room off one mobile home. Flying debris also hit many other homes. A golf cart was also tipped over and sheet metal was strewn across the grounds.

Tobin says trees are down throughout the mobile home park.

He says no injuries were reported.
