Possible Funnel Cloud Spotted In Atlantic County

GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP, N.J. (CBS) - It was a happy yet frightening moment at an Atlantic County high school Thursday evening.

Shortly after all of the graduates of Absegami High School in Galloway Township received their diplomas, a possible funnel cloud appeared over the school's football field.

Some people took cover in the school as a mix of hail, rain and wind suddenly took over.

Matthew Blanchard of Egg Harbor was in the stands, attending his stepsister's graduation when he pulled out his phone to capture the event.
