HIALEAH, Fla. – Many Hialeah residents took to Twitter on Sunday night to show the damage they encountered after a tornado warning was issued.
The National Weather Service in Miami canceled the warning for northern Miami-Dade County after the alert was issued.
A severe thunderstorm that was capable of producing a tornado was located over Miami Lakes, near Hialeah, moving east at 20 mph, but the storm lost its rotation.
The Hialeah Fire Department later said a tornado touched down near the area of 1800 West 76th Street, but the National Weather Service has yet to confirm that it was a tornado.
