A water spout sprang up near the Howard Frankland Bridge as a band of storms moved through the region Monday evening. The National Weather Service issued a short-lived a tornado warning for northern Pinellas County, but canceled it at about 7 p.m. Officials said they had been monitoring a funnel someone spotted near Commerce Boulevard and Tampa Road 10 minutes earlier. Several houses along Shore Drive East in Oldsmar had minor roof damage, said Fire Chief Dean O'Nale. No injuries were reported.
Safety Harbor, Florida - 10 News spotted a waterspout that may have officially turned into a tornado on our tower cams Monday night shortly after 6:30 near the Courtney Campbell bridge. It formed off of seabreeze collisions and outflow boundaries from other storms. The collision of the storms caused the rotation seen here. The difference between a waterspout and a tornado is that a waterspout stays over water, but once it makes landfall, it is classified as a tornado.
