The phones were buzzing late this morning with reports -- now confirmed by eyewitnesses -- that a tornado damaged the elementary/middle school in Baker, Florida. Baker is in Okaloosa County.

The second grade classroom suffered the worst hit, witnesses say. At least fourteen second graders are said to have suffered injuries, but all are believed at this time to be minor.

No local news stations or newspapers have as yet reported the matter.

Update - 3 pm

USA Today has the news, too.

It cruised through north of US 90 and went on into Alabama.

It took down some utility lines, damaged buildings, and a woman in Belleville, Alabama was killed by the debris when her chimney came down.

It was moving along at about 45mph.
