Tornado Warning For Flagler County Expires

Jun 6, 2016

Update: The tornado warning for Flagler County has expired.

The National Weather Service in Jacksonville had issued a tornado warning for central Flagler County.

Tropical Storm Colin is expected to affect the First Coast most heavily Monday night and into Tuesday morning. But its effects are expected to arrive much sooner, says St. Johns County Emergency Management Director Linda Stoughton. 

"We could start to see rain come across around 2, 3 o'clock in the afternoon. This is mostly going to be a nighttime event, so if people need to run out very quickly and get supplies, this would be the absolute time to do it," she says.
