Weather knocks down trees across Central Fla.

No injuries reported, fire rescue officials say

APOPKA, Fla. - At least three trees fell on houses and cars as storms moved across Central Florida on Thursday.

Orange County Fire Rescue said a tree fell onto a house in Apopka. The owner of the house on Cheetah Trail was not home at the time of the incident.

There were no injuries reported.  It's not clear what caused the tree to fall and how much damage the tree did to the home.

Meanwhile, across town, a tree fell on an employee's van at a Longwood moving business.

Local 6 obtained pictures of the tree falling on the van from the employees of Apartment Movers on East State Road 434. No injuries were reported in that incident either.

Also in Seminole County, a tree was struck by lightning and fell into an apartment building on Ballard Street just after 5 p.m. The woman in the home told Local 6 she was sitting outside on her porch with her two kids when the branch crushed the porch.

Rain moved across Central Florida throughout the afternoon Thursday, as severe thunderstorm alerts were issued by the National Weather Service for Orange, Osceola, Brevard and Seminole counties.

More rain is possible Friday afternoon, but Father's Day weekend is expected to be clear.
