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.

Notable TornadoesEdit

Hurricane Maria made landfall near Apalachicola, Florida as a Category 4 Hurricane, causing significant damage.

Tallahassee EF5Edit

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.
