PENSACOLA, FL (NEWS5) – We were able to get an aerial perspective of the tornado devastation in Pensacola and the images are heartbreaking.

News 5 drone pilot Jim Johnson flew directly over the Moorings, an apartment complex on Old Spanish Trail. The EF-3 tornado ripped through the complex, totaling cars, trucks and SUV’s and wiping out entire apartments.

After the tornado cut through the Moorings, it hit the G.E. plant. The damage there is minimal compared to other areas.

The tornado continued NE and leveled at least four waterfront townhouses on Scenic Drive. Adjacent units appear to be untouched. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
