As tornado watch warnings were issued for South Florida on Saturday, a man captured a video of a water spout in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida (see below).
Beginning around 7:15 p.m. on Saturday, Hurricane Irma sent her first tornado to the beaches of Lauderhill, Florida, which is just north of the city of Ft. Lauderdale. As the storm’s outer bands began to church the ocean water along South Florida’s coastline, videos showing waterspouts and funnel clouds traveling inland started showing up on social media sites.
On Sunday morning, tornado warnings were issued in both Miami-Dade and Broward, according to CBS Miami.
Currently, over 1,000,000 people are without power in Florida.
