>> anchor: right now on the morning news. radar you see is still lit up due to the weather alert. all but 2 counties were under a tornado watch until 8:00 this morning and we still have thunderstorm warnings. >> anchor: and we have a live look outside. crews fanned out all over central florida to bring you comprehensive coverage. we' re staying on top of this all throughout the night and throughout the morning. >> we have been here and here at 11:00 last night. i was with you and troy bridges with you and the entire weather team in this morning. good morning to you! i'
6:01 am
m kiersten and justin is off. the storms are the chief focus this morning. the meteorologist danny treanor are all here but we start with meteorologist tom sorrells. how are we going? >> tom: getting better all the time. watching from brevard county down to osceola and the tornado watch will start to go from west to east and start peeling counties out of that i' m sure, but this box goes until 6:30 to rural orange county and orange county is taken out because it' s pushed to osceola and brevard. this line of activity is producing severe thunderstorm warning winds and hits the criteria better than 60 mph and putting out the wind and putting out heavy rain on top of merritt island and better than a quarter inch here and 3 quarter inches here and pushing to the east rapidly. things moving on at 50 mph and pushing all the way past rockledge at 5:58 and on to merritt island now. out past cocoa beach it' s 6:07 and the other line of activity in southwest brevard county has
6:02 am
the last 15 or 20 minutes so the lightning strikes are gone through that one and everything little bit. joining me now in the storm tracking center is meteorologist danny trainer and troy bridges and, guys, the closest the tornado warnings got from polk county to two tornado warnings in polk county during the morning and from one. >> and we had all that activity down in the sarasota area and had several tornado warnings down there as the stuff moved on shore and then it weakened as it moved in our direction, but we still have a couple of those severe thunderstorm warnings. the good news is we will we' ll take you out now and show you what we' re pinpointing across central florida with that line and notice the clearing as tom has been pointing out. stay clearing and the clouds we' ll see more of the showers and the heavier downpours pushing on off to the east. brevard county in the worst of it right now and that trend will continue for the next few minutes and notice to the east orange county and now out of the warning box but we'
6:03 am
watching some strong winds move into central sections and northern sections of brevard county and to kennedy space center down to the east of i- 95 with the heavier downpours to port st. john and dewitt boulevard and fayette and seeing that up to a couple of inches an hour in some of the spots and there' s downtown orlando beginning to dry out now and see rockledge under the gun with the push of some strong wind gusts as well. those winds could be near 50 mph and that region with southern sections of brevard county and palm bay to the street level and malabar road and heavier rain coming down there and more of that for webber road as well. that region in southern brevard as well as osceola county, that' s where we' ve been pinpointing the heaviest of the rain and that' s come off the books as the severe thunderstorm warning has fallen off. that' s the good news but still heavier rain pushing through areas like yeehaw junction and points to the north of there. we' ll continue to pinpoint that. here' s the good news with the clouds and rain forecast. as we take you through 7:00
6:04 am
begins to push out. that' s the next hour or so from now and we still see a little bit lingering in southern brevard county according to the model data. and then wrapping around a little bit of left over moisture. that' s why we can' t say it' s not clearing out all together. it will take more to continue to push out. and there are those temperatures across central florida right now and 67 in central sections including orlando and we' re at 61 in ocala and daytona beach at 63 and 69 in cocoa beach. now let' s check on your forecast and head back on over to danny treanor. danny, what are we pinpointing now? >> dan: it' s late and the sun coming up and the remainder of the showers are coming out of here and then we start to dry out. by the way, if you' ve been missing that cooler weather. we' ll bring that back to the repeat performance. and as you see the rain go down
6:05 am
sunshine late in the afternoon the skies clear out and we have a very nice day for you for tomorrow so hang in there. it looks like the holiday tomorrow with martin luther king day is going to be great. the high is 42 but look out. 39 can be the overnight low and that for tuesday. and you know what? it looks like we' re going to hang on to some of the cooler temperatures and make it very nice for you for the remainder of the week. and uh- oh! by the time we get to friday, though, a hiccup. we have the chance of rain coming back in the full forecast. >> won' t mind the rain if it doesn' t bring up the tornado watch. so there you go. only one tornado warning over in polk county. right now severe thunderstorm warning for brevard and osceola goes until 6:30. back to you. >> anchor: we broke the news with the push alert from the weather 6 pinpoint app. that' s free in the droid and
6:06 am
>> anchor: and from sarasota county, the video just getting into the newsroom showing the damage after a tornado touched down there. again, this is siesta key in the western portion of sarasota county. i used to work there and this is close to that area. several large areas of damage. the power lines are down and area. they lit it up because of that but streets are blocked. also reports of several people injured in that area. just got a message here on facebook saying when the storm blowed through, the word they used was nasty. developing story and a lot of destruction and this coming just days after another twister we' ll keep an eye on this and let you know as soon as we get video.
6:07 am
s why this is the time to download the pinpoint weather app. it will send alerts to the phone. as tornado warnings pop up and they could have this morning and check live radar and see exactly where the storms are. it' s always free to download and search wkmg in the app store right now. kirsten? >> anchor: trying to figure out what caused this huge inferno at the citrus packing business in leesburg. the viewer sent us this incredible video that was taken just as that fire broke out on citrus street. it was fully engulfed and the street. the business owner sells gasoline at the property as well. there was a big fuel tanker just feet away from where the flames were burning. though it' s stored in code, it' s certainly that amount of fuel in a fire isn' t a pleasant thing to see. >> anchor: fire fighters say
6:08 am
stop the flames before they got to that fuel. it took nearly three dozen fire fighters to put out the fire. the good news we' re told no one was hurt. the cause is now under investigation. >> anchor: this morning orlando police trying to figure out what led to two people getting shot in the middle of the neighborhood. the victims found late last night on lanet street off raleigh street in the carver shores area. police tell news 6 that one person was hit in the shoulder. the other person was grazed on the head by a bullet. hospital. police say that they' re going to be okay. at this point no word on any possible suspects. meanwhile police continue their hunt this morning for 2 people that were in a stolen car when a teenage driver was shot by an orlando police officer. the officer was trying to pull them over early yesterday on north lane. that' s when they say the driver sped up while heading right towards the officer. so one of the officers opened fire shooting trevon lamans. they say lamans was still able to drive off but crashed in the
6:09 am
the two suspects that were inside were able to run away and lamans was taken to the hospital and expected to be okay and that officer that shot him is on paid leave with law enforcement and investigates this. >> anchor: three people are recovering right now after a crash in brevard county. the impact was so strong it sent one car crashing right into the building. fire fighters sent us these pictures of the wreck and fortunately fire fighters say the building was vacant at the time and no one was inside and had to board up after all that damage. two of those hurt were treated at the scene and did have to go to the hospital and waited to find out what led up to that crash and if anyone will be facing any charges. >> anchor: good news out of manatee county in southwest florida. the area where the damage was reported we showed you, one person is now confirmed dead
6:10 am
the area hit by a large tornado we' ve been talking about. we' ve been trying to get you more information. >> anchor: when we come back a live report as the area remains under a tornado watch and tom
6:11 am
>> anchor: we continue to follow breaking news in southwest florida. this is showing the damage left behind after the tornado touched down in sarasota county. this is the siesta key area, so the larger homes out on the key pretty badly. debris falling all over yards and cars in this area. >> anchor: right, and we did just learn one person is now confirmed dead from the storms moving through the area and that is in manatee county. we want to make clear we' re not talking about that but just in this video and not sure. they have streets blocked off and also reports of several
6:12 am
addition to that one death. a developing center there. destruction. not what we were wanting to see. >> anchor: we were afraid of video like this. that' s why we' ve been on top of this all night. so far we' ve been very lucky here and see the potential and this is why we brought in that meteorologists here this morning and that' s why you are morning at 5:00. usually we' >> anchor: exactly. and also why you should get the push alerts to your cell phone and download that app. it' s free and go to the app store and search wkmg with the pinpoint weather app and we' ve been pushing alerts out all morning long with our team coverage and sorrells tracking this all night long. where are we seing that?
6:13 am
ll go back and see that in a moment. but first this. we' re learning no longer a secret detail swap and behind the scenes negotiations between here. >> and they confirmed that iran has freed 5 u.s. prisoningers including the washington post reporter and for more than a year and a half and part of the exchange and candidates for president focus on the swap and that campaign trail yesterday. >> coming back i will tell you it' s a disgrace they' ve been there for so long. at this point prayers of thanksgiving they' re coming home.
6:14 am
to investigate the whereabouts of a man that disappeared in 2007. >> anchor: in just hours spacex hopes to make history once again. >> anchor: they have a 30 second windo to launch a falcon 9 from california this time and on board will be an ocean monitoring satellite for noaa and then space x is hoping to land the first stage of the rocket out in the ocean. here' s a look at last month' s first ever successful landing of an orbital rocket on land and at the cape. >> anchor: love seeing this video every time i see it. i wish i could see it in real life. would love to go. >> anchor: it' s amazing and the point of all of this is to make a rocket use cheaper so they can reuse these rockets. this is the barge that spacex is aiming for out in the pacific and it is tricky with the platform up and down and two off the cape this year and
6:15 am
it touched down and blew up. so why try again? it is landing on the pad and uses less fuel because the rocket can be tweeter and he hasn' t gotten environmental approval yet like he did get at the cape to land in california. there is zero chance of bad weather so we' ll be following it and much more. >> anchor: hopefully goes well! >> want to see it. >> anchor: i want to go out and see it. one of these days. now turn it over to chief meteorologist tom sorrells and we' ve been tracking a lot. >> getting better and better all the time and then it is going to be rapidly improve and then it is going to the one going on this morning. then it is going to cocoa beach
6:16 am
going to look how nice and going to flagler county and then it is to speed and going to see the activity here and it is going to rockledge and now leaving right after the tip of the cape and another 12 minutes from now with this going at 16 miles per and it is going to be hot. in autobahn with wilson right there and that activity pushing out past satellite beach with another 15 minutes right now and kept watching this back counter around palm bay and that particular cell associated with it earlier and watch the way it rolled and it is going to be farther across the interior. then it is going to the lightning strikes. dissolving as this system worked its way over and then it
6:17 am
and lost the mojo. still out of rain and not much with any damaging wind and problems associate wide it and about 30 minutes from now that' s all she wrote. 7 minutes and heavy rain and damaging wind and big time problems will be a thing of the past and about another 30 minutes right now. and this is what it looks like as far as the radar goes and what the winds look like this morning and check out cocoa beach. that' s the area being warned and 39 mph wind in the last few minutes and out at patrick air force base. talking about high wind and lots of rain with the lightning troy has abated. any time we' re tracking tornado warnings we like to follow the lightning. the hail and try to figure out what' s going on with the velocity. our lightning didn' t pan out. i was awoken by the rumble of thunder in the overnight where i was getting up to join you t been along.
6:18 am
s good news and saw most of the heaviest activity. the intense energy to our south and the big red arrows here indicate what' s happening now as, tom, you pointed out we are going to see most of this clear out but look to the south with these poor people down there still dealing with the tornado warnings in the south of fort pierce and for us that line is moving quickly off to the east. as tom said nearly 65 mph and seeing more trend of the clearing conditions. as we head into the next few minutes and within the next hour or so. we' ll continue to pinpoint that as it moves off to the east and continues to move out of the way across central florida and as it does most of the rain to the south in southern brevard county and most of us looking better, especially into orange county as we continue to pinpoint most of that heavy rain over near the kennedy out to sea. 95 and back over and the street level to some of those areas where we had the
6:19 am
s windy city and autobahn road and rockledge and all of these regions seeing the heaviest rain for the past half hour and rockledge now not seeing the heaviest and off to the east of us and still moderate rain on the top for you and then it' s moving off to the east and going down to the moderate rain and stronger wind gusts and now moving out and then it' s going down to the south for now and beginning to clear out across the large part of orange county. as tom mentioned we' re seeing the rain with the heaviest stuff moving to the east and that wrap around moisture heading out with low pressure and the lingering showers for there' s 8:00 as we take you this hour and even through then going to linger and push through parts going to then the clouds will eventually clear out and we' ll see more sunshine
6:20 am
temperatures fairly cool considering and then it' s going for a good bit this morning and we' ll have more of the storms fueled by those warm temperatures. we have that warm front move through and 67 is the temperature right now in orlando and 63 in ocala. and milder in brevard county. right now 70 . let' s check on the forecast now and head over to meteorologist danny treanor. danny, looking better later today. >> dan: and it' s good news - - (inaudible) >> there we are. getting the mike together and >> anchor: that' s going to be and they' soon. as you' ve seen it is already
6:21 am
and it will linger and start to get peekaboo sunshine by late in the afternoon and then continue the cooler and drying trend as we go into the beginning of the weekend and those of you with the monday holiday. good news for you. it' s 67 and that is down to 60% and look at the chance for tuesday night' s temperature and the kids are going to need some jackets and the third time this year you had to put a jacket on the kid? >> it' s been nice! >> reporter: just remember that this is going to be very, very typical. this is actually more typical of systems moving through and creating thunderstorms and things like that than all summer long. >> anchor: we have the severe thunderstorm watch for a few ll say goodbye to it rather quickly.
6:22 am
>> anchor: thanks, guys. it' s been a long morning. tracking these storms all morning long. even just got a tweet from the viewer saying they had storms still. a lot of rain coming down right now. >> anchor: wow! long night and long morning. we' ll check in with mark about an hour ago and it is coming down! mark is in osceola county in kissimee now and looking much better there. mark? >> yes, what a difference an hour makes and it was coming down and now heavy rain seems to come out of nowhere and the winds would come and it just all went away and drying out with that large part of the county is now in the clear. no rain falling and see roads are still slick with those few carc and still moderate and no
6:23 am
going on right now is mainly the wind and we' re seeing about 16 mph winds right now but things are looking pretty well in osceola county so far. we' ll stay on top of things and see if there is any potential damage or possibly power outages in the area and keep you updated with the latest here in osceola county this morning. >> anchor: thanks so much, mark. working hard out there. we appreciate it. >> anchor: staying dry mostly. you know who is not staying dry is erik sandoval and this is a live picture where you can see a much different story and that is what tom and troy and danny are talking about. and depends on where this is still hanging around on the coast and why we still have warnings out on the coast. it has been raining there hard. >> a lot of power out ages. >> the power is out in a bunch
6:24 am

6:26 am
getting hit in the face with some hail right now, erik. you can see really strong gusts and right over here a florida power and light crew is just dispatched to another power we' ve been getting reports of a lot of downed trees here and right now probably about 150 people here in the melbourne area who are without power. but we' ve been following this 20- right now and they' ve been slowing down in the areas and checking to see if everything is okay and look for the palm trees hitting power lines and mainly it' s residential areas and florida power and light says a small outage respected in cocobeach and southern area
6:27 am
re expecting to hear more reports of downed trees and power outages especially as people wake sxup actually report them to florida power and light. erik? >> anchor: and a lot of water >> reporter: you' right. whips through there, too. the thing that' s really making the weather biting right now and really dangerous for drivers is the wet roadways and the possibility of flooding we' re in the high profile vehicle in the news 6 live van and going down i- 95 so exercise a lot of caution.
6:28 am
>> all i drive a golf ball. i drive to the hoop. i drive a racecar. i have a driver. his name is carl. but that's not what we all have in common. twe talked to our doctors about treatment with xarelto . r xarelto is proven to treat and help reduce r the risk of dvt and pe blood clots. p xarelto is also proven to reduce the risk of stroke r in people with afib, not caused by a heart valve problem. r for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, t there is limited information on how t xarelto and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. p you know, taking warfarin, i had to deal with that blood testing routine. ri couldn't have a healthy salad whenever i wanted. i found another way. yeah, treatment with xarelto . hey, safety first. r like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto r without talking to your doctor, as this may r increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke.
6:29 am
bruise more easily and r it may take longer for bleeding to stop. p xarelto may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. p xarelto can cause serious and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. r get help right away for unexpected bleeding, r unusual bruising, or tingling. r if you have had spinal anesthesia while r on xarelto , watch for back pain or any nerve r or muscle related signs or symptoms. r do not take xarelto if you have an artificial t heart valve or abnormal bleeding. r tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. p before starting xarelto , tell your doctor about r any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto is the number onerprescribed blood thinner t in its class. well that calls for ar round of kevin nealons. make mine an arnold palmer. same here. p with xarelto there is no regular blood monitoring r and no known dietary restrictions. r treatment with xarelto was the right move for us.
6:30 am
ve been following severe weather all night and it seems to be calming down, at least in our area. >> anchor: we' ve been lucky but pictures from southwest florida, particularly from sarasota county, where things
6:31 am
a tornado and it touches down on siesta key and several large measures in that area and totally ripped apart on some of these homes and then it is going to see lots of power outages and it is also from the storm and then it is going to see more coming out of manatee county as to what happened and that situation. >> and it is going to meteorologist tom sorrells and watching all of this for us. we find we didn' t get the worst >> we' re let down. the closest it' s just on the county line across from us to the viewing area and it is
6:32 am
temperatures and we really lucked out. we have a tornado watch in effect and all the counties and under a tornado watch until 8 a.m. and here' s why. the last of the radar ecose are still here and that warning that went away at about 6:30 and been done with the warnings for about 6 minutes. down to the south we have a significant weather advisory until the last of this goes on out. this is the last of the big showers we have here. the tornado watch is in effect but trailing on out and saw eric being pelted by hail stones. he said they' re small, not big enough to warrant a severe significant nonetheless and that hail good going on through. given the last 20- until 7- 7:15 it will be done for southern brevard county as well and finally be out of the
6:33 am
down to the south in fort pierce to lake okeechobee a tornado warning to the south of lake okeechobee but warmer and more to work with so here at home that atmosphere is calmer and saved us a bunch. difference that made all the difference in the world. hey, it' s in the clear and no rain now and it won' t be a picture perfect day. can still run into the rain shower and wreck the day if not ready for it with light showers as that begins to focus on in and it is another tornado watch and warning with lighter rain possible for awhile but no big huge storms and then start to focus on what' s going on with the temperatures. right now holding at 67 in orlando and 53 in leesburg and 56 with the colder air trying to show up for us and wind speeds are part of the equation
6:34 am
is going to northeast and still mild enough to southwest and wicked in cocoa beach and still 20 mph wind and as far as wind gusts goes, there you go. that' s why we have the significant weather advisory. 49 mph wind gusts in the last half of an hour right there in cocoa beach and a 30- mph wind gusts in melbourne. so there you go, guys. most of the warnings are over at least for now and it looks throughout the overnight. >> thank you, tom. and the other things going on this morning now.
6:35 am
and found both of those victims. the other shot in the left shoulder. we' re told both are taken to the hospital and should have more information on this case. >> anchor: an incredible scene in leesburg after a business that packages citrus goes up in flames. we got this video of the fire late last night at lake county citrus sales on spencer street. you can see the flames shooting high into the night skies and fires arrived on the scene and it wasn' t the only danger here and that' s because that business also had fuel tanks. and even a few tanker on site. just feet from where that fire was burning. cut off the fire' s progress to the storage tanks. there was a fuel tanker that got some heat damage to it, but didn' t catch fire. >> anchor: it took nearly 3 the flames. the good news, though, no one

state to vote after iowa and new hampshire where sanders is giving clinton an unexpected challenge. cbs news, charleston, south carolina. >> and the democratic debate begins at 9:00 tonight. an amazing story caught on camera out of australia. >> it' s a wonder no one was seriously hurt here. a car is smashed into a gas station nearly hitting a woman inside. let' s take a look. the accident was caught on surveillance cameras. there it is! >> wow! >> anchor: can you imagine being behind the counter? >> anchor: did you see her reaction, too? >> anchor: the woman disappears from sight as the car flies into the convenience store. she is hit but the car actually just mised her. it triggered a gas leesleak though. authorities knocked off the area until it was contained and dragged two people inside and were inside that car and see in there. >> anchor: gee whiz! >> anchor: they were taken to
6:43 am
police are investigating to determine what caused the that accident. >> anchor: another few feet that would have been really bad! good thing. >> reporter: okay, chief meteorologist tom sorrells is in this morning and been here all night and pinpointing the storms for you. tom, the news gets better minute by minute. a lot of the news warnings and watches expiring. >> tom: good news and bad news. getting ready of the tornado threat and that is in bro vard county off the clock at - - brevard county and off the clock at 8. could pull it now if they wanted but it goes for another hour. this is all that goes for the storm system. it moves at 60 and sometimes 65 and 75 mph and following the progress and it just blasted through here and makes friday' s system look slow. raining to the beach right now but it' s not dangerous. s not dangerous, only level 2 precip and hail
6:44 am
we heard from erik down there reporting with light hail in his face and now it' it' s a fish storm damage doing harm out there but not on land right now. from the cape in melbourne with the chance of light rain but not a lot of action going on. across the interior, down here to tampa with more firing up in dover to the south of the i- corridor and farther to the south with the warmer air and it is really exploding from west palm beach and take note that is down to south lake okeechobee is gone and the colder air is yet to show up with the extended forecast for troy and danny and just note more light rain may fly out of evening tonight. the temperatures right now are good. still 72 in melbourne. that' s warm!
6:45 am
that reading in gainesville. wind at 16 mph and 9 in gainesville and 7 in palm coast and wicked to melbourne beach and melbourne with the 25 mph sustained wind and the 40 mph wind gust in cocoa beach. and in with danny trainer and meteorologist troy bridges and, s going on for the cool down. >> waiting for this front to clear and once it moves through it will clear us out all together. so as tom mentioned that wrap around moisture we' re dealing with and that risk of severe storms is over with and that ground with the dryer air and water vapor imagery and that moisture pushing to the east and look at the temperatures. to the north much cooler and 37 in atlanta and jacksonville right now at 67 and we' re at 67
6:46 am
here in the coming days. and look at us right now. milder in brevard county and 66 in gainesville and 63 in ocala and heading over to danny treanor. y>> reporter: that' s not moved through yet. it still has to go through and that' s one of the reasons why we' re talking about showers to be possible through the rest of the morning. i think the chance of the rain to go down and the coverage area is down to 20- 10% and the temperatures. the temperatures never get much above what they are right now. in fact the top temperature in orlando and it' s warmer in melbourne and we' re in the 70s and orlando may reach only 76 this afternoon and then tonight temperatures dropped and 43 in kissimee and daytona beach and cocoa beach is down to around 55 .
6:47 am

6:56 am
the cape with that line of severe thunderstorm warnings and that last warning out of the cape and maybe 35 minutes since it went off the clock and drying out from gainesville to ocala and kissimee and that future radar will show you with trying to move in from gainesville and ocala and cooling down. . back to 66 in sanford and 65 and in leesburg down to 14 mph and 12 in kissimee and the 30 mph wind gusts in the last hour in cocoa beach. so, troy, all this wind is always an indication of big >> there' s the front. here. see the wrap around moisture
6:57 am
pressure and then the front moves in and colder air will work in. in fact much cooler air on the way in the coming days. see the wrap around moisture this afternoon. 31 is the temperature right now in nashville and it' s 36 in atlanta and 56 in jacksonville and warmer in the 70s. in the low 70s right now as we talk about temperatures in brevard county and again cooler for the rest of us. not warming up and more sunshine breaking out and look at this. rain chances coming to an end for the afternoon as we dry out and 67 at 4:00 and the temperatures continue in the 60s as we head out today.

6:59 am
storms roll through and in the past few hours. the sheriff' s office there is also warning of power lines down in the area so they have blocked off several streets. and in the last 10 minutes we' re learning that 2 people are now dead after another suspected tornado touchdown. this happens just north of that area and this is in manatee county in the town called dewitt just eedeast of bradenton. in fact there were reports of multiple other people injured. we' re continuing to watch this for you and we' ll let you know as soon as we get any new information from this area. >> reporter: and closer to home, fortunately we' ve seen nothing like that. but parts of central florida have been under warnings for hours and that does include brevard county. news 6 reporter erik sandoval continues from melbourne and there were power outages in this area and also heard you mention hail earlier. >> reporter: yeah, the small pellets of hail were hitting my face during our last live shot with you which was 30 minutes
7:00 am
and i just checked with florida power and light and they say roughly 10 people are still without power but 30 minutes ago it was pouring down rain and the wind was whipping up. now the rain has moved out. the sun is actually coming up. but the wind is still a story. i want to show you these trees here behind me. you can see the wind is still rattling their leaves a little bit. but as the moments progress this morning, that is becoming less of an issue. i want to show you video i shot earlier today from florida power and light. the crews were zooming - - okay, i' m sorry. we don' t have that video. but let me tell you florida power and light crews were stationed behind me here in this parking lot. they were darting to and from areas all over brevard county. we had countless reports of trees hitting power lines. small residential areas are all of a sudden being zapped without power. again, those numbers are slowly going down and about 150 and another section in cocoa beach
7:01 am
melbourne and we' ll track those updates with florida power and light and maybe watching with the live stream on the mobile light if you don' t have electricity and be patient because they have several reports of outages throughout brevard county. >> and all over central florida for that area, too. t see severe storms overnight chances are you probably were woken up by pounding rain and gusting wind and even thunder at some point. the news 6 reporter in osceola county and saw you a couple of hours ago and it' s really coming down there. >> reporter: yes, it' s coming down in sheets. moderate at times and heavy in others. but definitely now things are looking all clear here in osceola county. just seeing wind at this time. no rain at all. but look at the roads with still some slick as people may head off to work and getting to where they' ll go and maybe possibly going to church this morning. so possibly some dangerous driving conditions and things
7:02 am
hour and all clear, in fact, but a stark contrast to what we' re seeing just a couple of hours ago. here' s a look at the video topper first in kissimee and osceola county and the wind picking up as well. and this is probably 3:30 to 1:00 and near celebration avenue and heavy in waves and it would go away and then all of a sudden it did go away around the 5:00 hour from 5- 6:00 and right back out here live things looking well and it' s just a bit colder here and breeze neosceola county and reports of power outages but osceola for the main part escaped any significant storm damage from the system moving through here early this morning. erik? >> anchor: there is a change coming and it' s gelgetting colder and that' s the next big

7:04 am
>> reporter: fire fighters, though, say fortunately they were able to stop the flames before they got to that fuel. told no one is hurt and the cause of the fire is under investigation. >> two were hurt in the late night shooting and one grazed by the bullet in the head and that scary scene unfolding late last night and this is in the carver shores neighborhood. police arrived and found both of the victims and the victim shot in the left shoulder and both taken to the hospital and should be okay. >> in orange county hundreds of people gather to honor civil rights icon dr. martin luther king jr. a big ceremony and parade to mark the legacy and life of dr. martin luther king jr. martin luther king jr. day is celebrating on the third monday
7:05 am
>> and things are finally calming down and we got lucky and the folks on the west coast did not. seeing those pictures but chief meteorologist tom sorrells is in this morning and tom, it seems the most and the worst of it pushed out. >> it is still this tornado watch box and more prekautionzary than anything. we don' t have video like that of us in central florida and that is pockets of activity with that rain and the big red zone to that nasty stuff to daytona beach and do still see bubbling here in polk county and all the way down to the east of tampa and that is lighter rain than what we had earlier and more preckiable rain and lighter stuff as cold air comes in and see the line of departure there.
