NWS: No damage reported after Sunday night funnel cloud in Clark County

A lack of reported damage has prompted the National Weather Service in Portland to opt out of conducting a storm survey today after reports of a funnel cloud in north Vancouver circulated on social media Sunday night.

So far, there are no reports of major damage in Clark County. Light damage has been reported, meteorologist Shawn Weagle told The Columbian.

A tornado warning was issued around 8 p.m. Sunday for the Orchard and Walnut Grove areas and was in effect for about 15 minutes..

Briana Phillips, with the weather service, said officials were coordinating where to send surveyors Monday morning, as there have also been reports of damage in the Old Cornelius Road area west of Portland. Winds there damaged a pumpkin patch and corn maze, according to media reports.

Flooding was also reported in parts of southwest Clark County after a period of intense rain earlier Sunday night. There was flooding on Interstate 5 due to the downpour and bad drainage, Phillips said. There have been no other reports of major flooding in the county, she said.

Videos of flooding on the freeway show drivers slowly moving through water covering all lanes. A commuter posted this video to Twitter on the account for Southwest Washington Emergency Service Alerts, a local group of police scanner enthusiasts and police volunteers. Warning: there is offensive language in the video.
