Title: Tornado at 4ML
Post by Jimboat on Jul 28th, 2008 at 8:47am
A tornado or funnel cloud was seen at Four Mile Lake on Saturday July 26, 2008 at around 2:30pm.  Here's a picture that I took during the event showing the funnel forming down to the ground just behind the trees on the west side of the lake.  The funnel touched to the ground twice...once for about 2 minutes and again later for about 5 minutes.  The WeatherNetwork showed the pictures on it's Saturday night report.

Wow!  Has a funnel cloud ever been seen on 4ML before?  Which side of the lake was it on?

Diane - i've been on the lake for 50 years, and I've never seen a funnel cloud or tornado that close before!

Thanks for posting the photos and video. I read about the damage on Silver Lake; any damage on FML?
