Florida Power & Light Co. said 333 customers in 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 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 meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Miami.
