The National Weather Service in Miami says an EF-0 tornado touched down on the Broward and Palm Beach county line Friday afternoon. https://twitter.com/NWSMiami/status/990036610757681153 National Weather Service storm reports from Friday, April 27 where blue shows wind gusts or damage and red shows a tornado or funnel cloud report. A team of meteorologists from the National Weather Service (Miami) surveyed the area Friday afternoon to come to a conclusion.  The team can confirm an EF-0 tornado touched down in Coral Springs. Damage was mostly to trees and vegetation. The top of trees had tree branches snapped and broken off. People across South Florida were able to take pictures and videos of the funnel cloud and wall cloud that this storm produced.

The storm itself developed around 2 p.m. eastern as it was enhanced by a building sea breeze. *Old radar image* between West Palm Beach and Ft. Lauderdale, FL Friday afternoon the 27th of April. The red box shows the tornado warning. It is quite common in the warmer months for storms to build quickly along the sea breeze, when the land temperatures surpass the nearby ocean temperatures. The "sea breeze" begins to build inland because the pressure over the land becomes lower than the nearby water and the air moves toward that lower pressure. The National Weather Service in Miami is asking folks in this area to send them information about the storm whether it be pictures, videos, or damage reports via Twitter and this link.
