A funnel cloud caused some excitement in Spokane County,
as many people reported seeing the cloud above Spokane
Valley. That funnel cloud wasn't a tornado, it was
a "cold core funnel," and they're probably more common
than you think.
Koday Pfliger says he was working at a construction
site nearby, when he heard some thunder and was getting
ready to leave.
"As I walked around the corner, I remember, I looked
over and seen it. Had to do a double take. I dropped
what was in my hands, pulled my phone out to take
the video," Pfliger said.
Pfliger caught video of the funnel cloud, but he wasn't
the only one to get it on camera. Many viewers sent
in their own photos of the phenomenon. But the National
Weather Service says they aren't all that uncommon.
