PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - It was a stormy start to the day, but the weather has calmed down a bit heading into the evening.
A strong line of storms moved through this morning which brought gusts around 40 to 45 miles per hour. This led to some minor damage to tree limbs and roof shingles for homes along the coast. There was also an unfortunate incident in which lightning struck a house and cause it to catch fire. With these storms, there was one tornado warning in which a funnel cloud was spotted in Okaloosa County. Most of us saw more than inch of rain accumulate. The Appalachicola River near Blountstown still dealing with minor flooding thanks to the additional rain. With that, a Flood Warning is still in place there and also the Choctawhatchee River.
We’re still seeing cloudy skies this evening across NWFL. Most of us will stay dry, but we will see scattered showers move through our eastern counties overnight and into Thursday. A thunderstorm is possible, but likely will not be severe. So for areas east of Bay County, don’t be surprised to see another round of showers tonight.
