Having been to Tampa, I'd say they're in bigger danger from funnel cakes than funnel clouds.

First glance I thought it read funnel cakes. Sure!

Can you really be hit by a funnel cloud? If so, can you be hit by a cumulonimbus cloud?

In Tampa and yesterday driving across Gandy & Bay bridges we could not see. No pics. All was gray, rain, and hail

HelloNeuman: Can you really be hit by a funnel cloud? If so, can you be hit by a cumulonimbus cloud?


Do cumulonimbus clouds reach down and touch the ground?

Funnel clouds spawn tornadoes but since the headline is only about funnel clouds, I'd say there weren't any tornadoes. So no big deal.

Ok, there must be a few retired Q's living in the area...

I was in St Pete's for a conference this past weekend. Perhaps the departure of my group caused some sort of vortex to form.

We have a tropical-type climate.  Its currently the rainy season.  It does this every rainy season.

When a funnel cloud hits you, wouldn't that be a tornado?

do not attempt to operate pipeline valves

your life just got a little simpler

help me find a fish and a butterfly

a bowl a day, our oriental rug

stretch for your comfort

feel lucky? scratch away

I am stronger than diabetes

I am fat and unhappy

I am empty please dispose of me

Super-intelligent mystery monkey

use the phone before the shovel

drink for no reason at all

Take my buffalo gun and join us

summer adventures await you...
