Three tornadoes were confirmed Friday after surveying damage, one in Florida and two in Washington D.C.
These reports of tornadoes aren’t totally unusual or rare, but they are noteworthy. For one, it shows that tornadoes can and do hit in urban areas. Take the D.C. case as an example that cities are subject to tornadoes, wind damage, and life-threatening situations too, and not just rural areas. Secondly, Florida usually gets EF-1 or EF-0 tornadoes. To get an EF-2 is noteworthy because it is a stronger storm that happens less often. Thus, we often don’t know how *strong* a tornado may be when a warning comes out so you’ll want to prepare for the worst and hope for the best. In both cases thankfully, no serious injuries were reported, nor fatalities.
