We had a horrible night in New Smyrna Beach. The weather radio warned of two tornadoes south of us, but reports this morning say that a tornado also hit north of us in Port Orange. This morning the winds and rains have picked up *a lot*, the water in our canal is high, the thunderstikes are amazing. One was so loud that I actually saw my walls shaking! We could not even walk our dogs due to the lightening risk (the poor guys could only do their stuff front of our house on very long leashes). I have been living here 7 years now, but this is the worst (non-cyclonic) weather I have ever seen.
What is going on here? Why is there so much thunder and lightening in the air? This is not a cyclone, ok, but is that just a "regular" thunderstorm stuck over East-Central Florida for three days?!?!
Where is all this power coming from?! Not form the tepid waters of the Atlantic, is it?
Take a look at the attached file. Looks like New Smyrna is gonna get it hard today
Thanks for any explanations about what is going on here
