    Background: GALE-FORCE WINDS AND RAINS HIT MIAMI YESTERDAY (date - source) IN A FOLLOW-UP TO WEDNESDAY NIGHT'S TORNADO, WHICH INFLICTED HEAVY DAMAGE TO THE CITY.

    FIRST, THE TORNADO HIT MIAMI AND HUNDREDS LOST THEIR HOMES IN RESIDENTIAL AREAS, PROPERTY DAMAGE WAS ESTIMATED IN THE MILLIONS, AND THEN, LAST NIGHT, TORRENTIAL RAINS CAME DOWN ON WHAT WAS LEFT OF THE HOMES. THE STREETS TURNED INTO RIVERS AND MIAMI WONDERED; "WHAT NEXT?"
    WINDS WITH GUSTS UP TO SIXTY MILES IN HOUR ROARED ACROSS THE FLORIDA CITY. AND RED CROSS WARKERS, TRYING TO HELP VICTIMS OF THE TORNADO, FOUND THE GOING ROUGH.

    AT LEAST ONE-HUNDRED WERE INSURED BY THE TWISTER ... BUT NOT ALL HAD TO BE ADMITTED TO HOSPITALS.

    LAST NIGHT'S DOWNPOUR MEASURED MORE THAN SEVEN INCHES WITHIN SIXTEEN HOURS. IT CAME HOURS AFTER A BLACK FUNNEL ROARED IN FROM BISCAYNE BAY AND LEAP_FROGGED ACROSS A TWELVE-MILE COURSE, INCLUDING A STOP AT ONE OF MIAMI'S MOST LUXURIOUS RESIDENTIAL SECTIONS.
