Rick Curry, an observation program leader for the National Weather Service in Wakefield, Va., told the Associated Press that a tornado has not been confirmed but that a storm was moving through the area at the time.
The winds caused damage to buildings and cars in the 75th Street area of the seaside city, said a fire department spokesman. No major injuries were reported.
The Post’s Capital Weather Gang reports that the funnel would be classified as a “waterspout” if it remained over the water. The CWG has additional details about the weather conditions that could have caused the funnel, complete with a radar map.
