Tuesday morning’s downpour in South Florida was more than just your average storm.

Another tornado touchdown in Davie was confirmed Wednesday by the National Weather Service.

That brings Tuesday’s tornado count to three: one in northeast Miami-Dade, one in Pompano Beach and one in Davie, said Chuck Caracozza of the National Weather Service.

The severe storm left a wide path of damage, including flooding, downed power lines, severe accidents on Interstate 95 and a roof collapse. Winds left debris, patio furniture and even a trampoline scattered across South Florida.

Tuesday afternoon brought along with it sunshine and cooler weather that is expected to last through the rest of the week. Highs in the mid-70s and lows in the low-60s are in the forecast until Sunday.
