Video of Tornado, Damage in Boca Raton

In this era of cell phone cameras, a twister doesn't have a chance of scoring a touchdown without being recorded by some brave soul, and the one that hit Boca Raton Saturday was no exception. There are actually several videos of this mini-cyclone, but I found the one recorded by folks who were close enough both to see the funnel cloud (wispy though it was) and to scramble to see the damage the tornado left in its wake. I posted the video after the jump.
