UPDATE: Tornado Confirmed In Hialeah

UPDATE: 1/28 12:00 p.m.

The National Weather Service has confirmed a strong EF-0 touched down just east of the Palmetto Expressway and south of the Gratigny Expressway.

It's believed the maximum winds were about 85 miles-per-hour.  

In its half-mile path, the 50-100-yard wide, tornado caused a lot of tree damage, knocked off some roof tiles and flung some patio awnings several homes away.



Trees snapped in half, overturned trucks and downed power lines are just a few of the problems for residents along the 1800 block of West 76th street.

Residents report the system simply came out of nowhere.

No injuries are reported.


South Florida will get a break from the rain today.  

This comes after heavy rain conditions caused the National Weather Service to issue tornado warnings last night for Miami Gardens, Miami Lakes, and Opa-Locka.  Rain chances should drop this afternoon, with sunshine expected tomorrow.  

Still, low temperatures will remain in the 50s today through Wednesday morning.
