Key West is such an awesome place, I hope it isnt destroyed.

Stay safe.

Oh, I have been to your town too, loved it, love the weather. Love it when there is no hurricanes or tornadoes that is,

Tornado warning. Radar indicated rotation and hail. NWS saying get to a hardened shelter NOW!
The storm is...wait.
EAS just activated again. Expanded tornado warning to include a larger area. I'm currently south of the warning area, but my condo is in danger.
The storm is moving West @ 35 mph and it's North of the I-75.
Moderate rain but no wind.
Weather Spotters just confirmed a tornado on the ground in Ft. Lauderdale.

And local radar saw another. They start off as waterspouts and walk on shore. 30 minutes have passed and the storm went just south of my condo. I'm currently south of there.
Doppler radar shows a waterspout heading for Port Everglades.
