We have had confirmed reports of tornadoes spawned by Tropical Storm Andrea touching down in Myakka City, Sun City Center and Gulfport.

The one in Gulfport did some damage to Yummy's Casual Cafe, a well-known spot on Gulfport's "Restaurant Row."

By the way, that tree that was destroyed was reportedly 200-years-old. 

The threat of tornadoes continues today with a tornado watch through 10 p.m. and the entire West Coast of Florida under a tropical storm watch until tomorrow morning.
