MIAMI (AP) — Severe weather in Miami spawned one confirmed tornado and is disrupting air travel.

The National Weather Service reported a tornado briefly touched ground Thursday at about 2:30 p.m. one mile west of Miami International Airport.

A second funnel cloud was spotted about 20 minutes later. There were no immediate reports of damage.

All tornado warnings were canceled by about 3:15 p.m.

Poor visibility kept planes from taking off or landing at Miami International Airport for over an hour. Airport spokeswoman Maria Levrant says 31 incoming and departing flights have been canceled. Another 54 flights have been delayed.
