Once again there was no damage reported from the storm. The tornado watch issued for the area on Monday afternoon was allowed to expire at 8:00 pm. The risk for severe weather diminished during the evening.

    I saw the Funnel Cloud from where I live. I never did see it touch down, but there was certainly rotation.
