NWS Confirms Sebago Lake Funnel Cloud
07/31/2012 08:48 AM ET  

The National Weather Service has confirmed that a funnel cloud formed over Sebago Lake last weekend.

NAPLES, Maine (AP) _ A meteorologist with the weather service based in Gray says photographs taken by James Sinko, a student Lyndon State College in Vermont, showed a funnel cloud forming Sunday off the beach at Sebago Lake State Park in Naples.

Sinko says the funnel cloud lasted about eight minutes.

Nancy Jean, a regular visitor to the lake, also took pictures of the funnel cloud. She says she's never seen anything like it before at the lake.

If the funnel cloud had made landfall it likely would have been classified as a tornado.
