12:15 pm
based off radar and the picture probably straight line winds for that. from the same line that vent across venice and sarasota county it also went through fort myers. we had strong rotation south of sarasota and north port. we'll get an idea as the national weather service makes an assessment whether this was a tornado. this was around the fort myers area. if you have any pictures you want to share that you have taken tweet them to me and i'll share them in the evening newscast. all clear with the exception of southeastern polk and highlands county. the last little bit of this first round of storms moving through. as it clears between sebring and lake placid it will be in your next of the woods in five minutes. it is a very strong tomorrow. at this point it is not severe. for the short term a tornado watch will remain in effect officially until 5:00 for

12:18 pm
