Area residents were witnesses to a unique weather phenomonon Tuesday evening.
Residents around Central Illinois may have noticed funnel clouds forming in the early evening hours Tuesday. According to EMA Coordinator for DeWitt County, Teresa Barnett, the national weather service informed her these are different types of funnels that allowed for multiple funnels to form. Barnett says there were funnels spotted outside of Clinton, Lincoln, Atlanta, and in Piatt County.
This sort of weather occurrence is very rare. Barnett says because it is so rare, it is very hard to predict.
