Severe Storms to Threaten Damage and Holiday Travel in Florida, Georgia

There is the risk of severe thunderstorms Tuesday into Tuesday night in parts of Florida and Georgia that could bring damage and disrupt travel.

The greatest risk for the storms is from the eastern part of the Florida Panhandle to the northern and central counties of the Florida Peninsula, as well as southeastern Georgia.

As the line of severe weather rolls through, it could add to road and flight delays already mounting from the storm system as it moves out from the South Central states.

Some of the storms will bring blinding downpours and strong wind gusts. Storm risks include flash flooding, sporadic power outages and property damage.

There is a chance that a couple of the strongest storms will produce a tornado as well.

Cities that could be in the path of the storms include Tampa, Orlando, Ocala, Gainesville, Tallahassee, and Jacksonville, Fla.; Savannah, Valdosta, Waycross, and Brunswick, Ga.; and Hilton Head, S.C.

People are encouraged to monitor severe weather bulletins, whether they will be traveling or staying at home Tuesday into the first part of Tuesday night.
