A tornado with winds over 100 mph hit South Florida Tuesday night. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-20) released the following statement:
"My sympathies go out to all the residents in Sunrise and Plantation affected by last night's tornado. While many homes have been damaged or destroyed, I am grateful that initial reports indicate no one was seriously injured or killed because of this natural disaster. My district staff is coordinating with local, state and federal emergency officials. If anyone needs assistance, my Pembroke Pines office is located at 10100 Pines Boulevard and you can contact my staff at 954-437-3936. I know that in times like this our community comes together to assist our neighbors and I hope we can get them back on their feet as soon as possible."
