2 Dead as Tornadoes Tear Through Florida

Two tornadoes and severe storms ripped through Florida’s Gulf coast, killing at least two people and damaging homes. The Manatee County Sheriff’s Office said on Sunday a couple were killed after a tornado hit a mobile home in Duette. The couple’s four children and their adult son were hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries, the sheriff’s office said. The tornado touched down about 50 miles southeast of Tampa with winds between 111 mph and 135 mph, the National Weather Service said. A second twister hit near Siesta Key in Sarasota County just seconds later.
