Default Tornado touches down at Calhoun

11/17/2014 approx. 4 a. m. a tornado touched down at Calhoun C. I. All inmates are reported safe, but there was injuries to two staff members and 25-30 cars damaged, some totaled. Also fences were torn down and Rec & Pride buildings damaged. Powerlines down.

I'm sure they are on lockdown until all is cleared up. Just in case you don't hear from a loved one.
I just happened to see the info on line while checking the weather report.

The Tallahassee Democrat has reporters on scene. The facility is on lockdown. The perimeter fence, PRIDE and CCI buildings, and loads of cars in the parking lot were damaged. Two staff were taken to the hospital. Power lines are down near the facility and being repaired.

There's a picture in the article of cars overturned in the parking lot.

It sounds like from this article that the two injured staff may have been in cars in the parking lot when the storm hit. There's pictures of the damaged fence, too.

I heard from him last night! He is good thank god... He said the damage was done to pride building and the warehouse some fences were knocked down and a lot of cars damaged. He said the tornado missed the inmate dorms. He got to go out and seen the damage and helped pick up since he is community status.
