FORT LAUDERDALE (CBSMiami) — As Irma’s outer bands begin to whip up the Florida coastline, videos have begun to emerge showing waterspouts and funnel clouds traveling inland.

Tornado Warnings have been issued in both Miami-Dade and Broward.

Around 7:15 p.m., a confirmed tornado touched down in Lauderhill.

At 7:30, a severe thunderstorm capable of producing a tornado was located near The Redland, moving west at 35 mph. The warning extended in Miami-Dade until 8:15 p.m.

In Broward, a severe thunderstorm capable of producing a tornado was located over Sawgrass Mills Mall in Sunrise, moving west at 35 mph. The warning extended in Broward until 8 p.m.

CBS4’s Carey Codd took this video of a tornado in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea.

CBS Boston’s Mike Lacrosse got another look at it.

A few hours earlier, the eye of Hurricane Irma was moving slowly away from the coast of Cuba. Maximum sustained winds were near 125 mph.
