(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.
