MYAKKA -- The sound of a cell phone text alert told Herb Loynd to gather his family and take cover.
Just before 3 a.m. Thursday, a tornado touched down near Myakka City, doing property damage but causing no injuries, authorities are reporting.

"My phone woke us up and told us to take cover," Loynd said.

"I opened the window, and you could feel the rumbling," he said. "Stuff went everywhere."
