A tornado touched down in Grand Bahama yesterday afternoon damaging buildings, including residences, and creating jitters among residents whose nerves were already frayed from the threat of Hurricane Irma.

The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) pointed to vivid images of the tornado and its destructive path, which flooded social media, “confirming predictions during the passage of Hurricane Irma through the northwestern island”.

A statement from NEMA said photos were sent from its office in Grand Bahama to NEMA’s headquarters in New Providence.

Among the buildings damaged were Colina Insurance, Star General, Imperial Garden Complex and a lodge hall.
