Stormy weather knocks down power lines in Broward County

Stormy weather knocked down power lines Tuesday morning in West Park, authorities said.

The power lines were knocked down at 5720 SW 40th Court, Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue spokesman Mike Jachles said.

Jachles said even cats were looking for a dry place to hide Tuesday morning as firefighters rescued a cat that was stuck under the hood of a Toyota RAV4 in the 2000 block of Southwest 41st Avenue. 

The rough weather comes a day after an EF-0 tornado touched down at Sheridan Street and Flamingo Road, the National Weather Service said on Tuesday. 

The NWS had issued a tornado warning and severe thunderstorm warning Monday night for southeastern Broward County. 

Rainy weather was also reported Tuesday in Miami-Dade County. 

The National Weather Service issued a flood advisory until 12:45 p.m. for southern Collier County and northern mainland Monroe County.

Drivers are urged to turn around if they approach an area with heavy flooding.

Weather officials said most flood deaths occur in vehicles. 

Meanwhile, Miami-Dade Aviation Department spokesman Marc Henderson said there have been 14 delays and two cancelations due to weather at Miami International Airport as of 10 a.m.

More storms are expected in South Florida for the rest of the week.
