Severe weather rakes Florida

12:35pm – As severe weather continues in eastern Florida, multiple tornado warnings are in effect. I used our 3D X-Vision to literally slice one of the tornadic storms in half to get a better view of what is happening just north of Melbourne. What you see here is two large precipitation cores with a lull in the rain/hail just north of Melbourne Beach. This is likely where an updraft is as things in the atmosphere are suspended. If there is a tornado with this storm, it will likely be in this area.

As of this post, there have been 6 tornado reports in Florida, mostly around the Tampa area.

Severe weather tore across central Florida on Thursday, trapping about 70 people at an airport in Lakeland, and spawning an apparent tornado in Tampa, the National Weather Service said.

Approximately 70 people were reported trapped in a collapsed building at the Sun ‘n’ Fun Aviation Fair at the Lakeland Linder Regional Airport in Florida due to severe winds, the weather service said.

In Tampa, meanwhile, an apparent tornado touched down in Hillsborough County, parts of which were under a tornado warning that the weather service issued at 11:51 a.m. The warning covered parts of Hillsborough as well as parts of Polk County.

    Colour plus texture for the lips. Stands out on the runway. Simmers on the street! What made M·A·C famous.
