So far only 2 tornadoes have been confirmed on Monday.
One was the Ef-0 tornado in Marion by the National Weather Service office in Jacksonville, and the other one was a visual confirmation of the tornado in Seminole County.
Although there was rotation noted on radar shortly before noon on Monday over Volusia county, the has not been a visual confirmation and the National Weather Service in Melbourne will survey the area on Tuesday to confirm if a tornado might have touched down in the county, or not.
Our certified digital meteorologist Irene Sans, confirmed with The National Weather Service office in Melbourne and they will survey Volusia county and Seminole county tomorrow. Since there were several visuals on the Seminole Tornado from viewers, it is confirmed that it was a tornado but a classification will not be given since they have not evaluated any damages.
