photos: Funnel cloud spotted forming in the skies over Brean
were the scenes over Brean on Friday when a funnel cloud was seen
stretching out of the sky.
Furber took these photos on his mobile phone of the cloud forming
told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "It was an amazing sight that was
visible for about 15-20 minutes. It disappeared into the clouds
and then reappeared several times but was clearly a funnel cloud."
the second time this year I have seen one of these clouds - the
first was back in July
when several people saw one over Stert Island."
clouds are rarely-seen formations of condensed water droplets
associated with a rotating column of wind and extending from the
base of a cloud but not reaching the ground or a water surface.
If they touch the ground, they become classed as a tornado.
