The weather service reported the storm also dumped between two and four inches of rain on many areas of eastern Duval and Nassau counties, flooding streets and parking lots. Standing water on the Arlington Expressway forced the Mathews Bridge closed during the afternoon rush hour.
Fire officials say lightning may have sparked two house fires. Both were quick extinguished.
The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office says only one person was treated for injuries sustained during the storm.
The storm knocked out electricity to thousands of residents, but the JEA reported the number of outages well under one hundred by Friday morning.
Residents who are still in need of assistance are being asked to call the Red Cross offices at 904-358-8091.
