  1. The local Central Florida stations have gone back to regular programming. A couple reports of trees down in the Deland area but that was it. Pretty sure if there had been more damage they would be covering it wall to wall considering the anomalous setup. Like I said when the day started, I'm almost always a lurker here because severe weather is a non-event most of the time here. But I would think since it's such a non event here, the stations would be all over any damage reports like...well, like news stations. We dodged a bullet here. Not so lucky further North. I'll head back to lurker mode now and will enjoy reading everyone's thoughts on why the storms in Florida failed to produce.
  2. If it's going over the airport, the speedway is directly adjacent.
  3. Ugh...if the Oak Hill storm is producing, it's about to get into a huge area of mobile homes on the Intracoastal.
  4. Geneva storm went about 3 miles north of me. Tremendous wind energy into the storm as it went by. Have friends in Geneva and they've all checked in as ok.
  5. The Oviedo warned storm is passing just west of me. Strobe light lightning. But I was here in 1998 and they were already reporting damage then with the first tornado, so I'm a bit skeptical that these are producing - haven't heard anything on any of the stations yet.
  6. Just went TOR.
  7. Goodness...that Eustis cell. You just don't see sups like that here in Central Florida. All of this is still North of me, but the cells near Lakeland I'll have to keep an eye on.
  8. 2007 storm went through southern Deland as an EF2. Was a peak EF3 west of there and took 21 lives in Paisley and Lack Mack areas. This hit in the middle of the night though. No ground truth on the local stations yet.
  9. Think that Leesburg storm has the most potential of the 3.
  10. Near Geneva, FL. To clarify, south of the High Risk. Lot of family just south of Jax though. Will be relaying a lot to them today. Good luck to your dad. Glad they have a shelter designation. This is pretty unprecedented for this area.
  11. I'm generally a complete lurker here, but I know this one! March 2, 2012 Forbes gave a 10 for portions of Kentucky. Pretty sure the last 9 is as noted here. Also, I am on the southern edge of the High Risk today in Central Florida so will try to post any happenings from my area.
  12. Think i see the "extremely dangerous and life threatening situation" in Florida about once a year: ...A TORNADO WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 930 PM EDT FOR NORTHERN BREVARD COUNTY... AT 846 PM EDT...WEATHER SERVICE DOPPLER RADAR CONTINUED TO INDICATE A SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WITH STRONG ROTATION. THIS TORNADO WAS CROSSING THE INTRACOASTAL WATERWAY NEAR COCOA TOWARDS MERRITT ISLAND AND STATE ROUTE 5 28...MOVING NORTHEAST AT 25 MPH. OTHER LOCATIONS IN THE WARNING INCLUDE BUT ARE NOT LIMITED TO BELLWOOD...CAPE CANAVERAL...JETTY PARK...PORT CANAVERAL...KENNEDY SPACE CENTER...MERRITT ISLAND WILDLIFE REFUGE AND PLAYALINDA BEACH. PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS... THIS IS AN EXTREMELY DANGEROUS AND LIFE THREATENING SITUATION. THIS STORM IS CAPABLE OF PRODUCING A STRONG TORNADO. IF YOU ARE IN THE PATH OF THIS TORNADO...TAKE COVER IMMEDIATELY!
  13. Pretty intense tornado warned couplet just went through Cocoa, FL. Wouldn't be surprised if that one produced.
  14. The Winter Garden/Sanford supercell tracked about 3 miles north of where I lived at the time (I lived in the gap between the two tornado touchdowns). The lightning from that cell was like nothing I had seen before or since living in Florida. I remember waking up and thinking someone was flashing a strobe light at my window. The Kissimmee tornado claimed 25 lives and is by far the most deadly in Florida history, but IIRC all of the fatalities were in an RV park that it struck part of. It continued on a long track south and east of Orlando in an area that has since had many communities built. A track like that today would produce significant damage. In fact, eventually we are going to have another long-tracked I-4 corridor major tornado event here that will have serious consequences based on the population boom.
  15. Appears the 2nd squall line is ahead of schedule as its already forming WSW of Tampa. I'm curious about the outflow orientation currently being to the ENE and whether the expected transition of the upper level support to a NNE flow will allow the line to build further north. In any event, the dynamics appear a bit more potent with this second round.
