Two people in Florida have been killed by a tornado. The NWS confirmed that two tornadoes touched down, one of which was an EF2 that struck Manatee County.

Severe weather ripped across the Sunshine State early Sunday morning. A man and a woman were killed and four children have been hospitalized after their mobile home was destroyed in Duette.

The storm was also responsible for knocking out power to 100,000 homes across the State.

These two deaths are the first tornado-related fatalities in the state since 2012.

Tranquil weather is expected for Florida Today.
