Storms that rolled through Polk County on Wednesday evening damaged seventeen mobile homes in Haines City, but the full extent of the damage won't be clear until the morning, according to Polk County Fire Rescue.

Initial reports were that three mobile homes had been damaged on Powerline Road in Haines City, according to the agency. But once crews surveyed the area, they found 17 damaged, three of them with structurally. The other damage seemed to be superficial, but building officials will complete a more accurate damage assessment in the morning.

No injuries were reported.

The storm blew off a porch roof in Fort Meade and damaged two homes in Bartow, the agency reports.
