Aerials from the scene show a section of the third floor of the garage collapsed onto the second floor and at least one vehicle overturned on its side.

Another vehicle on the third floor is tilted precariously on the edge of the collapsed section.

Witness Velda Stokes told News4JAX there was a loud “Boom!” and when she came outside she saw the car on its side in the garage and “all hell broke loose.”
