Drivers saw what looked like a funnel cloud Thursday afternoon near Anderson. NWS teams say their survey revealed a two-mile path with trees and tree limbs down just southeast of Anderson, with all the trees and limbs pointing toward the southeast.
The National Weather Service says the evidence suggests straight line wind damage. "While several pictures of funnel clouds were received, there is no evidence of rotation in the damage on the ground," NWS said.
Two amateur weather spotters got one of the funnels on camera, between the Pendleton and the first Anderson exit along I-69.
"It should have [gone] off whether for the county or for the city," said Tim Bingham, who says he depends on them.
An expert familiar with the system told us the police officers who first spotted the funnel saw it near Hoosier Park. He says at that point, it was out of the city limits and moving away from Anderson.
