Monday morning an F-2 tornado struck Revere about 25 miles south from here. Many homes and businesses were damaged but luckily only few minor injuries. Here we had a brief downpour and rumble of thunder. Just about 6:45 pm I was working in the yard when I noticed clouds building. I grabbed my camera and headed up the hill behind my house where we have sweeping views looking west from south to north. After a few shots of impressive cloud formations I began to notice rotation at the base of the clouds. Micro funnels appeared and disappeared then a larger more defined funnel took shape. From beginning to end I guess it didn't last for more than a minute but was amazing to see. This is a rare event for here, tornado's are something we only hear about from the midwest but over the past few years conditions for tornado's have increased. June of 2013 I captured one from the same spot and luckily the same outcome. Lets hope our luck holds for the future!
