The first one happened around 1:20 PM ET near the Tamiami Fairground in Miami-Dade County, causing damage to houses and bringing power lines and fences down.

Around 5:42 PM ET, another likely tornado damaged multiple mobile homes in Boynton Beach.

Less than an hour later, there were a few reports of a tornado in West Palm Beach that caused minor damage.  A wind gust of 75 miles per hour was reported with this same storm.

There still is the threat for tornadoes Saturday night into Sunday morning as Tropical Storm Philippe skirts South Florida.
