Several reports of funnel clouds around Wood County were received starting about 2:15 this afternoon.

Once trained spotters confirmed reports, the Wood County Sheriff's Office set off tornado warning sirens.

One photo (below) with this story was taken by Brad Espen, director of the environmental division of the Wood County Health Department, from the health department parking lot on East Gypsy Lane Road on the south edge of Bowling Green. The other photo (left) was taken by Sentinel-Tribune photographer Shane Hughes on the west side of BG from Mitchell Road south of Poe Road looking west.

Spotters have reported no rotation in the funnels they have seen and nothing has touched the ground. After a few minutes the funnels have been disappearing into the clouds.

At 2:47 a cold air funnel was reported in the area of the Wood County Landfill four miles west of BG by a trained spotter.
