Video: Funnel cloud touches down at Ocean Beach this morning

Strange weather we’re having in the Bay today; even a rare tornado warning down in San Mateo.

We didn’t get a warning here, but we had our own little tornado moment this morning around 9:24am. Youtuber Neorick shot this video of a funnel cloud touching down at Ocean Beach. “I was looking outside my window. There was a very dark cloud and there it was.” Wild!

Thanks to RichmondSFBlog reader Robin for sending it in. Here’s a couple of pics taken by another reader, Carl.

  1. ahoy matey, it be a waterspout when its on the ocean like that! Tornado be a landlubber’s term!

  2. ..and funnel clouds are “tornadoes” that haven’t touched down. Not to geek out on this too much. 😉

  3. Aye Robin tis a keen mind you have. The SS geekout sails these waters now and then but makes port calls to the blog when rain prevents better sailing!

  4. I thought that cloud looked mean this morning! Too bad I didn’t see the spout, though.

  5. @Carl – Cool! I added a link to your photos in the article. Yeah, that video is pretty trippy!
