Now they're left cleaning up the mess and trying to figure out what to do next.

The National Weather Service is on the ground in the Tampa Bay area on Friday surveying the damage and investigating reports of a possible tornado.

Radar shows a possible brief tornado between Seminole and Pinellas Park around 10:40 p.m.

The worst of the storms moved through the Tampa Bay area overnight, with a crane collapsing on I-275 and thousands left without power.
