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.
