    I have a bunch of good photos of the funnel cloud and hail. Looked like it was right around Sunrise and Whiterock at about 3pm.

    Saw it at Kilgore and International at about 3pm! Took a pic with my cellphone. Watched it come down and saw it spinning then go up and disappear into the cloud over Sunrise Blvd.

    Sorry Channel 13, while we watched your “still” photos of the funnel clouds yesterday, Channel 3 was showing live pictures of an actual moving funnel cloud and it was awesome! See what happens when you have access to a helicopter for weather reporting.
