These pictures provided by George and Susan Smith of Westport, Massachusetts, relatives of K1IBR-Bill Miller show why. This very scary scene on Wednesday Afternoon August 6th, 1997 at around 2:15 PM shows a funnel cloud that touched down briefly as a weak F0 tornado causing the tree tops to be broken across an uninhabited area in the Drift Road section of Westport. Doppler Radar did not detect it, but several spotters in the Wesport area phoned in and reported via amateur radio, this feature as a funnel cloud. If it were not for SKYWARN spotters, this feature may have gone undetected. How do you get involved in SKYWARN? The following internal and external SKYWARN links show you how to get involved:
