Deadly tornadoes hit Florida

Severe thunderstorms and at least three confirmed tornadoes have swept through Florida.

Two people have been killed and four others injured. The dead and injured were in their mobile home in Duette, Manatee County, 90km southeast of Tampa, when the tornado struck early on Sunday.

The EF2-rated tornado, with winds between 178 and 217 kilometres per hour, is reported to have cut a swath of damage 100m wide, across a 15km stretch of the county.

The four injured are all children but their injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.

The fatalities are the first tornado-related deaths in Florida since those that occurred during Tropical Cyclone Debby in 2012...
