STRAWBERRY RESERVOIR – A water spout crossed Strawberry Reservoir’s bank, passed the boat ramps, picked up dust, and went up the mountain on Memorial Day.
It became a tornado. Eyewitness Kyle Rowland recorded it on his cellphone.
“It started out in the middle of the lake and then crossed the highway where everyone was standing watching it,” he said.
“As it was going into the bank, it was right where the boat ramps are where the ladder section is, so it picked up all the dust off the bank and it went across the highway (U.S. 40) and we watched it go up the mountain.”
The National Weather Service described the tornado as “a narrow, ropelike condensation funnel that forms while the thunderstorm cloud is still growing.”
There were no reports of damage or injuries.
