(NBC News) Tropical Storm Andrea rushed across the Florida peninsula Thursday, kicking up the surf and flooding coastal communities.

Inland the bigger concern continues to be tornados spawned by the first named system of the season.

In Palm Beach County power lines and trees were pulled down, windows shattered and debris scattered for blocks after a funnel touched down.

For emergency teams and businesses along the Florida coast, Andrea is an early warning of what could be a tough tropical season.

"You expect a month or so into the season, but this is amazing," says Tarpon Springs resident Debbie Thompson.

For most tourists the storm is an inconvenience, but not an end to their trip.

Most are making the best of the bad weather, but not taking any chances with the violent surf.

"The waves are really rough, its taking you all the way down the beach, even if you get in a little bit you can feel it pull you all the way down the beach," says Kristi Fairchild.

A dangerous reminder as Andrea makes its' way across the coast, carrying with it the start of another potentially active hurricane season.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
