Severe thunderstorms impacted the Orlando Metro area, as well as Lake, Volusia, Brevard, and St. Lucie counties. Many reports of downed trees and power lines, damage to roofs and other weak structures were received.

A stationary upper-level disturbance, strong onshore flow, and a weak frontal boundary produced persistent heavy rainfall and squalls across a large portion of east central Florida on October 7-8. ||A strong gale then formed over the Bahamas on October 9 and moved northwest and onto the Brevard and Volusia County coast late in the evening.
