Severe Weather Update: Florida severe storms and tornadoes

Main Content

A series of severe storms and tornadoes are moving through central and southwest Florida.  Our regional office in Atlanta continues to be in constant contact with Florida’s Emergency Operations Center, as well as our partners at the National Weather Service.

When natural disasters, such as severe storms and tornadoes, strike the first responders are local emergency and public works personnel, volunteers, humanitarian organizations, and numerous private interest groups who provide emergency assistance required to protect the public's health and safety and to meet immediate human needs.  We stand ready to support State and local responders if Federal assistance is needed.

If you are in the path of the storm, seek shelter immediately.  Monitor your local forecast on your NOAA severe weather radio or through local news, and be sure to follow the direction of local officials.

Today the fly-in at Sun-n-Fun was hit by severe weather- possibly a tornado. Fortunately, there was advance notice and while there were a lot of airplanes damaged, at least htere were few injuries (7- 6 of which were minor). Kudos to those who let everyone know in time!<br /><br />Bruce Schottland<br />www.harterschottland.com
