With Hurricane Irma hours away from South Florida, the National Weather Service issued a tornado watch in nine counties.
One tornado touchdown in Oakland Park was confirmed at 6:36 p.m., according to the National Weather Service’s Twitter account. No injuries were reported.
People in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties, as well as Charlotte, Collier, Glades, Hendry, Lee and mainland Monroe should watch for tornadoes until midnight.
Tornadoes are a common result of the whirling winds hurricanes bring ashore.
