Tampa Bay Experiences Waterspouts and a Canceled Tornado Warning on Tuesday
According to the Tampa Bay Times, on the afternoon of Tuesday June 29, a tornado warning was issued for Pinellas County. It was canceled not long after it was originally instated, however thunderstorms plagued the area for the rest of the day.
Chief Meteorologist Mike Clay of Spectrum Bay News 9 said the tornado warning was likely triggered by “a waterspout that made its way to shore” and that there was no real threat of a tornado to the area. The National Weather Service made the cancellation to the warning approximately 15 minutes after its initial announcement.
The weather service’s Ruskin office issued a warning that waterspouts were still likely and that residents would experience intense thunderstorms for the rest of the day. Clay warned Pinellas County about thunderstorms as well.
Wind gusts up to 40 miles per hour were reported and a powerline went down, but no further damage has been reported. Bay News 9 is reporting that the rain is expected to continue throughout the rest of the week.
