The National Weather Service has issued a severe thunderstorm warning for northeast Flagler County and southeast St. Johns County, in effect through 3 p.m. Friday. Palm Coast and Flagler Beach are included in the warning.
At 2:14 p.m., the service was tracking an extended and broad line of thunderstorms from Andalusia to Bunnell, moving northeast at 25 miles per hour. The thunderstorms are capable of producing hail the size of a quarter, damaging winds of more than 60 miles per hour, and dangerous sky-t-ground lightning.
Tornadoes are not likely, but still possible, the weather service warns, as radar is indicating weak rotations within the storm.
A thunderstorm watch will remain in effect after the warning expires, through 5 p.m. for Flagler and Northeast Florida.
In late afternoon, Bob Pickering of Flagler County Emergency reported that pea-size hail fell in West Palm Coast at 1:59 p.m., and 1-inch hail fell at Grand Haven at 2:31 p.m., according to REACT and CERT teams.
