Videos Show Funnel Cloud, Waterspout In Cape Cod Canal

BOURNE (CBS) – As tornado warnings hit southeastern Massachusetts Tuesday afternoon, photos and videos showed dramatic images of funnel clouds in the area.

One video taken by Glen Bryant showed a possible tornado or waterspout by the Bourne Bridge.

"You can see the clearly formed funnel there, this is a no-doubter," WBZ-TV Chief Meteorologist Eric Fisher said. "We don't see very clear views of funnels in southern New England too often. . . this is one of the clearest ones that I can remember around the area in the last few years."

Another video shot by Dan Corey showed a waterspout on the Cape Cod Canal.

"That's right in the canal," Fisher said. "That is a clear touchdown of a waterspout and a tornado if it did come ashore on the banks there."

Impressive storm clouds could be seen for miles; Daniel Wood captured a wall cloud right over the canal in Sandwich.

There were no immediate reports of damage, but hail coated the ground in some spots.
