BRADENTON, FLA. - Every land-falling tropical cyclone carries a tornado risk, and forecasters confirm Emily was no exception.
An EF-0 tornado, with an estimated peak wind of 80 mph, is confirmed to have caused damage Monday, July 31, according to a National Weather Service storm report.
The weak tornado was about the width of a football field, starting to cause damage around 10:55 a.m. in the area of 9th Avenue and 99th Street NW. Several trees and branches were brought down as it moved along the north-south 99th Street.
It dissipated no more than three minutes later.
Forecasters say the tornado destroyed several greenhouses, toppled a wall and damaged two barns.
The damage estimate is pegged at $96,000.
The remnants of Emily continue to move north-northeast into the Atlantic Ocean, away from the United States.
