SX4673 : Tornado

near to Tavistock, Devon, Great Britain

This twister was seen from the western edge of Tavistock. The funnel cloud itself was somewhere over the western edge of Dartmoor between Princetown and Yelverton. The mast on the left side of the picture is on North Hessary Tor. The weather conditions at the time were hot and humid with cloud and showers building up over the land and a light breeze. There were no reports of damage. As photographed here it is not actually a tornado, just a funnel cloud, as it is not touching the ground although a photograph of this storm printed in a local newspaper the following day did appear to show this happening.
