Florida Tornadoes

Tornado Season
In Florida, tornadoes can occur at any time of the year. Tornadoes can form on their own, or they can accompany hurricanes and tropical storms. Generally, weather patterns produce the strongest tornadoes between February and May.

The Kissimmee Tornado Outbreak of 1998
Late on the night of February 22, powerful tornadoes formed in east-central Florida. Three of the tornadoes were classified as F3 on the Fujita scale, meaning that they had winds between 158 mph and 206 mph. The other tornadoes were not as strong, and were classified as F0 to F2. The tornadoes killed 42 people and injured over 250.

The Central Florida Tornadoes of 2007
On February 2, tornadoes in central Florida killed 21 people, and caused about $270 million in damage. The tornadoes were the first to be classified using the Enhanced Fujita Scale. The storms' intensity ranged from EF0 to EF3. The tornadoes struck during the early morning, when residents were asleep, and this timing may have contributed to the high number of fatalities.
