Funnel cloud STX
Saw a post on FB of a funnel cloud over STX. Did it touch down?? Any damage?? I hope not.
We stopped and watched it for at least 10 min!
It was beautiful and spooky at the same time!
I have never seen anything like it.
We saw it from Grove , near the old drive in,
About 5:00 or 5:30 yesterday afternoon.
no it never touched the ground.
Thanks for the update
I was flying myself back from St. Thomas....quite a site from the air.
it just shows that cold weather can arise here
Anyone got pics?
St Croix source has a photo taken right at the airport!
I just missed seeing it, too! I recall seeing a very low dark line of clouds and thinking that it looked like something could form out of it!
there is a pic in the avis too
How often does that happen here? Or is it more evidence of climate change?
not often and no
Never seen it before.., only over water a few times
Pic should be sent to the weather channel.
I was wondering if that was a water spout (which are not completely uncommon) or a tornado.
It was definitely over land, in the middle of the island, so it was a funnel cloud. If it touches down then it becomes a tornado.
Also since it was photographed at the airport, and then near Grove/Bethlehem, that means that it either travelled a mile or two, or two funnels had formed. Most likely it was the same one.
My friend Sue posted four photos on FB.
I saw a waterspout over Hans Lollik this past Sunday as well. Anyone else?
Waterspouts are not uncommon here in the VI.
I have seen lots over the years. Fascinating to watch them develop.
There's a terrific picture online I saw once of one in the STT harbour, early evening hours.
Saw a small one on the way back from Jost once and we drove around it, then stopped to enjoy the spectacle.
I have a couple pics from some I have seen from my home over the water. Pretty rare over land tho!
I remember finding this photo somewhere else and posting it years ago here:
Yes NoOne! That is the picture I remember.
Thanks for posting it. Pretty Awesome!
Incredible pic! Thanks for sharing!
Was there another one that was similar that showed the Cruise Ship dock In STT or was that a lightning pic?
