The NWS in Tallahassee has issued a Tornado Warning

The NWS in Tallahassee has issued a Tornado Warning for Leon County in Florida until 1230 PM EST

At 1156 am EST National Weather Service Doppler radar indicated a
developing tornado near Lake Jackson or 8 miles northwest of
Tallahassee moving east at 25 mph.

The tornado will be near Harbinwood Estates and Bellwood Estates by 1205 PM EST...
Killearn estates Maclay state gardens and Saint Peter by 1220 PM EST

This includes Interstate 10 between exits 196 and 209

Precautionary/preparedness actions

In addition to the tornado this storm is capable of producing
damaging straight line winds.

Do not use Highway overpasses for shelter. Overpasses do not provide
protection from tornadic winds. Vehicles stopped under bridges block
traffic and prevent people from getting out of the storm's path and
to shelter.

The safest place to be during a tornado is in a basement. Get under a
workbench or other piece of sturdy furniture. If no basement is
available seek shelter on the lowest floor of the building in an
interior hallway or room such as a closet.
