Hurricane Ian’s rain bands increase possibility of tornadoes in Miami-Dade, Broward
As Hurricane Ian heads for landfall in western Florida on Wednesday, the storm’s rain bands increased the possibility of tornadoes in Miami-Dade and Broward counties.
In Broward County, the National Weather Service confirmed there was a tornado at about 7:20 p.m., in Cooper City and at about 7:50 p.m. in Hollywood. There were tornado warnings in western Palm Beach County until 1:45 a.m.
Residents in south Miami-Dade County reported evidence of a tornado, but the National Weather Service in Miami had yet to confirm the report.
As of 12:30 a.m., the Category 3 storm was about 100 miles southwest of Naples, and it was moving north-northeast at 10 mph with maximum sustained winds of 120 mph, according to the National Hurricane Center’s bulletin.
After Ian passes the Florida Keys, the latest forecast shows Ian will approach the west coast of Florida and move over central Florida on Wednesday night and Thursday morning to emerge over the western Atlantic by late Thursday.
