Thunderstorms rolled through West Michigan on Tuesday, May 26, and residents in the Greenville area snapped photos of an ominous-looking funnel cloud.

The photo here was taken looking northeast, near the old Meijer store.

According to woodtv8 meteorologist Kyle Underwood’s report at woodtv.com, a weak but rotating storm produced the funnel cloud. “A funnel cloud is a rotating parcel of condensation and is often the precursor to a tornado; a tornado occurs when the condensation funnel is reaching the ground or debris can be seen swirling on the ground,” he explained.

The storm produced heavy rain and gusty winds, but he said that no tornado was reported and no damage was reported in the area. Minor damage was reported in Newaygo County, with some trees and a power line down.
