Fort Pulaski and Cockspur Island are closed indefinitely due to Tuesday's severe weather, the park announced via Facebook.
The National Weather Service confirmed an EF-1 tornado crossed the east end of the island just after 6 p.m.
The fort itself sustained minimal damage. Most of the destruction occurred at the park’s Visitor Center complex and must be assessed for structural integrity.
