Both deaths were in Manatee County, sheriff's office spokesman Dave Bristow said. At least three tornadoes were reported in the region Sunday.

In nearby Sarasota County, some homes were damaged but there were no reports of major injuries, according to a county spokesman.

One family in Sarasota whose home was destroyed had to be removed from the wreckage by firefighters, but they only suffered minor injuries.

Of the 350 properties inspected, fewer than 45 sustained damage, according to Sarasota County Emergency Management. The damage is estimated at more than $3 million.
