Tornado flips vehicles, minor injuries reported in northern Broward County – Sun Sentinel

Florida Power & Light Co. said 333 customers in #Broward #County were without power, but it was not immediately clear if those outages were all caused by the storm, a spokesman said.   Perhaps the most dramatic wind event: A passenger vehicle traveling south on Florida's Turnpike was carried to the northbound lanes of the highway, Florida Highway Patrol Sgt. Mark Wysocky said.   A new warning for severe thunder storms and potentially more tornadoes was issued at 10:45 a.m. until 11:45 a.m. for south/central Palm Beach County and northwest Broward County.   An apparent #tornado that touched down in northern Broward County Wednesday morning overturned trucks, crashed cars and was blamed for the loss of electric power. Injuries were minor, according to initial reports by authorities.   First reports of the storm came at about 9:30 a.m. in the Broward College area and in the area of Florida's Turnpike a few minutes after that, said Arlena Moses, a me…

13 people saved from sinking yacht off Broward; what caused sinking unknown – Sun Sentinel

"The vessel was already listing about 15 degrees to the port side and every subsequent roll it would settle deeper and deeper into the water," Morgan said. "The stern of the vessel was under and we just observed it getting worse. The condition kept deteriorating and in such a rapid fashion."   Using an infrared camera, the U.S. #Coast Guard captured dramatic video of the vessel listing before it slipped below the dark, choppy surface in a puff of smoke.   The 4-year-old custom-built yacht sank in about 1,200 feet of "deep, unrecoverable water," where it will remain, said Sea Tow Capt. Tim Morgan. He estimated the vessel's value at $10 million to $15 million.   Six passengers — including registered owner Richard Paul Matheson of Brazil — six crew members and the captain were rescued without injury by the U.S. Coast Guard and taken to its Miami Beach base aboard a cutter. The yacht's port of call was listed as Rio de Janeiro.   On a moonless night amid…

Women drugged men, stole their Rolexes, police say – Sun Sentinel

One woman had dark hair worn in tight buns and wore a low-cut top with an open jacket and high heels. The other woman had blonde hair with dark roots and carried her heels in her hand as she ran past the security camera.

 

The woman, police said, met the man at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino near Hollywood. At about 5 a.m., the two went to the man's residence in the 2000 block...

 

The men woke up the next morning with their wrists stripped bare. One of them checked his house safe and saw that five other watches had been taken as well.

 

The men, both in their early 50s, told detectives they met two young women at the Porterhouse Bar in Sunny Isles Beach and invited them back to one man's Hollywood home.

 

Hollywood police are looking for two women accused of stealing several #Rolex watches after possibly drugging two men. The women are described to be in their early to mid-20s.
