Strong Winds Cause Damage, Outages in Tampa Area

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Strong winds forced trees and power lines to blow over in Tampa Bay, but no injuries have been reported.

Forecasters say the same storm system that spawned a violent wave of Midwest and Southern storms brought the severe weather to parts of north Florida and the Tampa area this weekend.

The Tampa Tribune reports ( ) canopies and sculptures were scattered around the Gasparilla Festival of the Arts in downtown Tampa Sunday morning. The winds brought some late winter cold and rain to the region.

Most of the damage reported involved trees and power lines down. The conditions created strong rip currents along the beaches.

A severe weather warning was issued for north Florida, with Tallahassee also under a severe thunderstorm warning.
