1Time from first tornado to last tornado
The Hurricane Maria Tornado Outbreak was the most destructive caused by an Atlantic tropical cyclone. It produced an EF5 tornado, the first one ever from a Tropical Cyclone. This outbreak also had the most for a Tropical Cyclone.
Hurricane Maria made landfall near Apalachicola, Florida as a Category 4 Hurricane, causing significant damage.
As Maria's extremely strong rain bands came in, a mini supercell spawned. This supercell became large, and a tornado warning was issued for the Tallahassee area. A tornado was reported to have touched down at 1:36 PM CDT, just southwest of Tallahassee, and was moving northeast. The torando exploded in strength, and began to uproot trees, and throw branches like twigs, and some landed on houses.
