St. Petersburg, Florida -- Powerful afternoon storms are creating a mess on the roads, and power outages all across the Tampa Bay area Tuesday afternoon.
Tampa Police say several intersections have traffic lights out. Drivers are reminded to drive slowly, and to treat intersections with no working lights as a four-way stop.
There are also reports of trees down across the area. Power poles have reportedly snapped in half near the intersection of Falkenburg Road and Highway 60 in Brandon.
