However, history reveals several events which have resulted in numerous casualties and extensive property damage, often occurring beyond the main hurricane impact zone and landfall period. This training session will examine the history of hurricane-rain-band tornadoes within Florida, the real-world impacts they produce, and will describe the environmental factors and storm tracks which are most conducive for outbreaks and strong-to-violent events. How the National Weather Service utilizes tornado-related messaging to accentuate especially serious threats will also be covered.
