Funnel Cloud spotted in Del Norte County

SMITH RIVER- A Del Norte County resident sent us what could be a funnel cloud near Smith River.
 
David Quaschnick took this photo Friday afternoon from Ocean View Drive. He and his wife had done some shopping and were heading north on Highway 101 when he glimpsed the spiral starting to form. Quaschnick said he had seen them back east and just had to pull over.
