Tornado touches down in Tallahassee-Closes Tallahassee Airport



TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — A tornado touched down near Florida's capital city airport, causing damage and knocking out weather radar before moving east into residential neighborhoods.

The National Weather Service reports the tornado touched down late Wednesday morning.Tallahassee International Airport was closed as officials assessed damage, but there were no reported injuries at the facility.

The city said a few thousand customers were without power. There was also reported damage in the city's Southwood community, home to several state offices, as well as scattered neighborhoods south of downtown.

Here is the audio - turns out there was a Tiger landing just before it happened.  Sounds like he got blown around on the ramp and watched a few other planes flip over before he was able to deplane!  That must have been exciting! :o
