Central Florida over last night tornadoes ripped through the area, with strong winds, hail, and torrential rain. This has affected Sprints CDMA network in the Central Florida region. As this time towers are being investigated, only limited towers are available to make/recieve calls. Outbound calls will be blocked for a while longer, if they are already in your area. This is due to the ongoing maitnence and repair being done to the effected towers. (Official word from: Network Managment). AREA AFFECTED: Sumter, Lake, Orange, Seminole, and Volusia counties. -------- If you are in this area; have you noticed any change? And most importantly is everyone okay; I road out the night fine, but I hope and pray everyone else is doing okay too. Many people think of tornadoes only plaguing the midwest. Yet this is not true. Florida is plagued by hurricanes during the summer (via land falling hurricanes - same time Midwest gets tornadoes), and then we are tackled again in the winter months (when the Midwest has a break) - winter tornadoes are due to the cold front (which picked up energy from the gulf), and sweeping across our hot/humid landmass - thus producing tornadoes. So while the Midwest only gets it once a year - we in Florida (part of the Dixie Alley) get hit twice. I am not saying it is better/worse in FL (or MW); but really no one realizes how hard Florida gets hit by tornadoes!
