FLL Tornado

Wed Apr 11, 2018 11:10 pm

Just saw on social media various reports of a tornado on the ground at FLL. Debris flying everywhere, aircraft active on the field. Seems to have caught everyone by surprise.

People are saying. Believe me.

I can't speak for airport ops, but the weather situation deteriorated very quickly yesterday here in South Florida. Glad no injuries were reported. Hope it stays that way.

Yes knocked out power yesterday for a while for some of us in the area. I missed Roma beating Barcelona thanks to this weather!

Happened quickly. Basically an hour block from 4 to 5 pm with terrible weather in Dade and Broward.

It was fun to sit on my balcony and watch some unusual (for MIA) visitors diverting to MIA!
