AUMSVILLE, Ore. (AP) - The National Weather Service in Portland says a video and reports from residents indicate a funnel cloud formed Tuesday evening near Aumsville in Oregon’s central Willamette Valley.

The Weather Service says the funnel cloud did not appear to touch the ground before it dissipated by about 6 p.m.

Forecasters say radar showed a “rather strong storm” in the area, with several reports of thunder and lightning.

Somewhat unstable air was reported Tuesday evening over northwest Oregon and southwest Washington.
