From the National Weather Service Tampa Bay: Tornado watch is in effect until 4p EDT.
...HIGH WIND IMPACT...
Increasing winds will result in hazardous conditions with a wind

strong winds may break small twigs from trees and blow around any
unsecured outdoor objects. High profile vehicles should use extra
caution especially if traveling over bridges or high overpasses.
...COASTAL FLOOD IMPACT...
Strong onshore flow will create elevated waters levels along
coastal locations with flooding possible today...especially at
the times of high tide. A coastal flood warning is now effect
through this evening for Citrus and Levy counties. But all
coastal residents should be alert for later statements or
warnings...and take action to protect property.
...RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
Strong winds on Gulf waters will create high water levels at area
beaches with high surf and a high risk of rip currents possible
into early Sunday.
Strong southerly winds on the Gulf will increase as they shift to
the northwest...in advance of a cold front moving through the
waters...and continue into Saturday. Wind speeds up to 20 to 25
knots with gusts to gale force will be possible...creating
hazardous boating conditions for small craft operators.
