Stay weather aware

Strong and severe fast-moving thunderstorms have prompted multiple tornado warnings to be issued for various parts of Central Florida. These storms are expected to continue throughout the overnight hours and through Thursday's morning commute.

A tornado watch has been issued for all of Central Florida until 9 a.m. Thursday, according to the National Weather Service.

The main weather threats with these storms are heavy rainfall, localized flooding, lightning, strong wind gusts, as well as the possibility of isolated tornadoes.

Right now, the timing for the strongest storms appear to be between 4 a.m. and 2 p.m. in Orlando and Central Florida. 

Here's what to do during a tornado warning

A tornado warning means a tornado has been spotted or has been indicated on radar. If you receive an alert on your phone, radio, or TV about a tornado warning, you need to get to safety right away.

  • Seek shelter: Find the innermost room of your house that does not have windows. This could be a bathroom or a closet. If you have a basement, go there.

You need to get to safety right away.

The severe threat will decrease Thursday afternoon, but more storms will be expected during that time. Tropical moisture will help to increase our temperatures through Saturday.
