On March 30, 1996 ...
Tornadoes were documented in Hernando, Sumter, Lake, Polk, and Brevard counties. Hail, most the size of baseballs, severely damaged the roofs, knocked out windows in nearly 600 homes, and severely damaged 3,000 vehicles in Lake Wales, Polk Co. Softball size hail (4.50") also occurred in Lake Wales, which set a new record as the largest documented hail for the state of Florida. Hail accumulated to a depth of one foot in Bartow. Golf ball size hail (1.75") fell in Hillsborough, Lake, Orange, Seminole, Brevard, Osceola and Martin counties. An 86 mph wind gust at Bartow Municipal Airport caused window and roof damage to the FAA tower, severely damaged roofs and doors of two businesses at the airport, and overturned and demolished five mobile homes on wheels at a mobile home plant on airport property. Winds blew down trees in Chuluota, Seminole Co., in Mulberry, Polk Co., and damaged a van and injured one person in Ocoee, Orange County. In Brevard Co., a waterspout/tornado touched down in Merritt Island and Cape Canaveral, tearing out windows and damaging roofs on several homes and buldings. Windows were blown out of 30 vehicles. Total property damage was estimated at $28 million dollars, with the storm producing the record size hail causing the majority of the damage at nearly $25 million dollars.
