Friday saw multiple lines of storms move through the South Sumter area.  One of the storms was warned when it moved into the area and caused widespread damage throughout the town of Cuba and the Kinterbish community.  Several area outbuildings and one home received damage to the roof and to the structure.  Conversations with the National Weather Service and local homeowners indicate that the damage was caused by a downburst or microburst.  Fire department units and Cuba Police responded to reports of damage in the area and assisted with power lines down and traffic obstructions.  Fire units assisted the homeowner that received significant roof damage tarp the roof of her home as well.  Below are a few images from the area:
