As it moved northwest toward the Publix at the corner of Sheridan and Pine Island, it caused damage to a few homes.
It uprooted a tree near Brian Piccolo Park in Cooper City before ending near Griffin Road.
The second tornado began less than an hour later just to the east in the 4800 block of Jefferson Street in Hollywood.
The National Weather Service reported a well-defined tornado debris signature on Doppler radar as it moved northwest through parts of Hollywood.
A few trees were uprooted near Broward College before the tornado ended near University and 595.
