PHOTOS: Tornado, flooding rains, deadly lightning strike hit South Florida

While much of northern Palm Beach County saw nothing but sunshine Tuesday, areas to the south were under siege by wicked weather that kicked up a tornado in western Broward County, hail in Pembroke Pines, flooding rains in Miami-Dade and a possible lightning strike that killed a man in Lake Worth. 

Florida’s summer thunderstorms are noted for their quick escalation with guts that carry deadly charges.

Lightning kills randomly, know myth from fact. 

Florida, is, in fact, unique when it comes to its summer thunderstorms, feeling the sea breeze from both coasts which can whip the atmosphere into a froth of funnel clouds and whiteout showers.

The National Weather Service in Miami initially said the tornado that hit in a non-residential area of Broward was a funnel cloud, but after seeing witness photos, determined it was a tornado.
