Episode Narrative Tropical Storm Beryl impacted east central Florida during May 27-29. Rainbands directly related to the tropical storm impacted mainly areas north of a line from Orlando to Cape Canaveral. Indirect impacts occurred farther south as additional rainbands developed during daytime heating and produced scattered thunderstorms with heavy rain, gusty winds, and an isolated short-lived tornado.
Event Narrative A line of thunderstorms formed along the sea breeze boundary within the far outer circulation of Tropical Storm Beryl. One of the storms produced a brief tornado in Lyngate Park and near the Saint Lucie Medical Center near Port Saint Lucie. Estimated sustained winds were around 65 mph, consistent with low-end EF0 damage. Minor damage was sustained to the roofs of two homes, several fences were knocked over, and a few small trees were downed. The tornado was witnessed by a Saint Lucie County Sheriff Officer and damage assessment was relayed from Saint Lucie County Emergency Management. No injuries or fatalities occurred.
