The Daytona Beach Fire Department said crews responded to several calls as of 9:30 p.m. for service due to severe weather in the area.

Officials said power outages were reported on the southeast side of the city in the areas of Nova Road and Orange Avenue.

"Florida Power and Light has been notified and are currently working on restoring power to the area," the department said Monday night.

Authorities said no timetable was set for power being restored to the affected area.

Crews also responded to several calls where trees damaged structures. Authorities said the most severe call was a tree into a vacant home in the 800 block of North Kottle Circle.

No injuries were reported.

"Daytona Beach Fire Department would like to remind all citizens and visitors of the greater Daytona Beach area to be mindful of the threat of severe weather and to take precautions to remain safe during the overnight hours," the department said.

As storms were entering the area Monday evening, winds caused a lightweight plane to flip over at the Daytona Beach Airport. Two student pilots from Phoenix East flight school on board were not injured.
