A funnel cloud descends from a severe thunderstorm over farm country west of Odessa in Lincoln County on the evening of May 6. Another funnel cloud was spotted later from the same line of storms north of Davenport. As the storms moved eastward, a powerful downdraft whipped up damaging winds south of Deer Park. A funnel cloud becomes a tornado when it touches ground.
