KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. (AP) — The National Weather Service says it received a report of a funnel cloud as a thunderstorm passed through northeast Klamath County late Thursday.

Jay Stockton of the weather service station in Medford says a red flag warning was issued Thursday because of thunderstorms and dry fuels. Stockton says the possibility of a tornado was mentioned during the warning because of wind associated with the storm.

No funnel clouds reached the ground and the thunderstorm broke up before it reached Lakeview.
