The National Weather Service has lifted a tornado alert for northern Miami-Dade County, Florida, on Sunday night, after imposing a warning at 8 p.m. EST. The alert was issued after a powerful thunderstorm was spotted over Miami Lakes.

According to Hialeah Fire Department, a tornado touched down in the western part of the city on Sunday night.

Several posts on social media showed flipped trucks on roads and other damages due to the severe weather.

The bad weather also led to cancellation and delay of several flights at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport in Florida.

"Weather Advisory: FLL is experiencing 196 delays and six cancellations due to inclement weather. Please check with your airline for the latest flight information. Thank you for your patience," a tweet from the official Twitter handle of the airport read.

According to the Flight Aware website, Miami International Airport too reported four cancellations.

Meanwhile, the NWS has issued a hazardous weather outlook for east central Florida. In its advisory, the agency said some areas would flood due to consistent rainfall.

"A steady rain with embedded heavier rain showers will continue tonight [Sunday] across all of east central Florida. Around 2 to 3 inches of rain has already fallen, with another 1 to 1.5 inches possible through early Monday morning. This rainfall will result in ponding of water on roadways and poor drainage areas," the advisory read.

"A Gale Warning is in effect tonight for all nearshore and offshore waters of east central Florida. Expect sustained north winds around 30 knots with gusts near 40 knots or higher, and seas building to 9 to 11 feet nearshore, and up to 13 feet offshore," it added.

Temperatures are expected to remain in the 40s Fahrenheit on Monday in most parts of Florida, it said.

The weather also hampered several events scheduled to take place Sunday in South Florida, Sun Sentinel reported. The Broward Quilt Expo in Fort Lauderdale and the South Florida Fair were some of the events which had to be either canceled or rescheduled, the outlet said.
