Severe weather caused damage on the Treasure Coast Tuesday as a line of storms swept eastward.

A small single-engine plane overturned at Treasure Coast International Airport Tuesday.

The wife of the plane's owner told NewsChannel 5 that they were working on the plane, saw the storm coming, and decided they needed to move it to the hangar.

The plane flipped while a mechanic was moving the aircraft. He was not seriously hurt, according to fire officials.

There was also damage to 3 trailers at Road Runner Travel Resort, St. Lucie County Public Information Manager Erick Gill said. He added that so far there have not been any major injuries reported.
