The National Weather Service in Jacksonville has issued a Tornado Warning for northern St. Johns County and southeastern Duval County until 12:45 p.m. 

A Flash Flood Warning has also been issued until 2:15 p.m. for both counties.

At 12:09 p.m. National Weather Service Meteorologists were tracking a waterspout near south Ponte Vedra Beach moving west at 20 mph.

This waterspout has the potential to contact local land areas at any time. For that reason a tornado warning has been issued for the local area.

Other locations in the warning include but are not limited to Guana River State Park, World Golf Village, Nocatee, Durbin, Bayard and Fruit Cove.
