Strong storms rip across Central Florida
Line of rain, storms moves through Orlando area
ORLANDO, Fla. – A storm system that caused damage north of Pensacola moved through Central Florida overnight, prompting weather warnings and causing power outages.
A tornado warning was issued early Tuesday for Brevard, Orange and Osceola counties, but no damage was reported.
Florida Power and Light said there were outages in several areas, including Cocoa, Merritt Island, Port St. John and Palm Bay, where 150 customers were without power.
"Most of the storms push out by 8 o'clock off the coast altogether as we dry out and see more sunshine through the day," News 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said.
Temperatures in Orlando will warm above the average to 78 degrees. The average high for this date is 74.
"We can expect lots of sunshine on Wednesday and a high of 75," Bridges said.
Rain chances stay out of the picture through the end of the week, with highs in the low and mid-70s.
Dozens of homes in Century, Florida, were reportedly damaged or destroyed as the same weather system that prompted warnings in Central Florida moved through the Panhandle on Monday.
Several videos taken in Escambia County show funnel clouds touching down.
The winds twisted metal around trees and destroyed buildings, leaving piles of rubble. As many as 30 homes were damaged in the Panhandle, according to officials.
