There were several tornadoes spawned by Sunday’s storms. This one was caught by law enforcement-on camera.

There were tornado warnings as early as the 6 a.m. hour Sunday morning. Though still dark, rotation in the strong storms was spotted on radar. The winds did cause damage in several parts of Pinellas County.
