Weather spotters in northern Christian County got a workout Tuesday afternoon, as a cold air funnel was sighted near Stonington.  The funnel triggered the Stonington tornado siren to go off around 5 o'clock, and the Stonington-Owaneco road was blocked for a time.

Christian County Emergency Management Agency director Mike Crews told Regional Radio News during a live interview on the Miller Media Group stations Tuesday afternoon during the 5 o'clock hour, that while the funnel did look ominous, it was not dangerous and did not do any damage.

No warnings were issued during the afternoon on Tuesday by the National Weather Service.
