Severe storms sweep county

Thunderstorms swept across Hernando County on Monday afternoon and put Spring Hill under a tornado warning, but no damages or injuries were reported. About a third to a half an inch of rain fell during the storm, which lasted about an hour, said John McMichael, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service. No tornadoes were reported, but radar confirmed a water spout offshore, McMichael said. Some school bus runs were delayed until the storm let up, Hernando Schools Superintendent John Sanders said. A spokeswoman from the Emergency Management Office heard reports of a broken window at a house on the coast, but officials couldn't determine if it was storm-related.
