Waterspout Scare In South Tampa

Waterspout Scare In South Tampa

Tampa, Fla-(970 WFLA)-A bit of a scare in South Tampa after people spotted a funnel cloud near MacDill Air Force Base.  Turns out it was a water spout that moved over land and then right back over the bay.

The National Weather Service in Ruskin did issue a tornado warning, but that was cancelled a short time later.  The funnel moved back into the clouds as the system moved across Hillsborough Bay.

There had been some water spouts spotted during the day, but they never made it to land.

No damage reported from the stormy weather.  A cool front moving down the peninsula triggered roday's rain.
