Two readers sent us photos of a car flipped on its side in the median of 441 near Mission Bay Plaza just north of Glades road. We are seeing significant traffic delays for cars going southbound on 441 on Google’s traffic map.
The red indicates traffic very slow or stopped. A member of our team was driving south on 441 a few minutes ago but turned at Yamato and did not notice any problems. Diverting via Yamato may be wise if possible.
And here’s a few more pics:
Update – A reader sent us a video of the tornado:
Several readers sent us photos of yesterday’s tornado in West Boca. We’ve assembled the best of them here. The picture at top is taken from Cain Boulevard (runs west of 441 from Boca Chase down to Glades).
It is our normal practice to keep readers anonymous when they submit tips or photos to us, unless they request credit or to be identified. None of them asked so for now they’re anonymous.
Here’s a shot from Mission Bay:
From South County Regional Park:

The next two had no location identified:
From Saturnia Isles:
And here’s our favorite. We like it because the sign seems odd in the context of the tornado:
A couple readers sent us videos but we weren’t able to get them to work. Hopefully they’ll resend them to firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Greek food competition is heating up in West Boca. Gyro Room is opening soon in Mission Bay Plaza, between Padrino’s and Rotelli’s. It will compete with Taso’s, which is kitty corner in Westwinds between Home Depot and Publix.
We got a quick look today. It’s even smaller inside than Taso’s though there are a couple of outside tables.
It’s All Greek at Clint Moore and Jimmy the Greek behind the International Jewelry Exchange are larger. There are also other Mediterranean places like Efes Bistro in Somerset Shoppes and some Pita joints.
We don’t have much info on Gyro Room yet, but will do a review when it opens.
