STRAWBERRY RESERVOIR — Memorial Day revelers at Strawberry Reservoir had a bit of a surprise Monday afternoon when a tornado-like cloud feature was spotted above the lake.

Around 1:10 p.m., several people reported seeing what looked like a funnel cloud above Strawberry Reservoir.

The National Weather Service reported that a tornado touched down and was likely one that features a "narrow, ropelike condensation funnel that forms while the thunderstorm cloud is still growing," known as a non-supercell landspout tornado, according to the weather service. The spinning on these funnels starts close to the ground.

There were no reports of damage or injuries caused by the storm.
