FAYETTE COUNTY (KWWL) -- Several funnel clouds are being reported across eastern Iowa Tuesday afternoon. But KWWL Chief Meteorologist Mark Schnackenberg says they are not dangerous.

Around 4:15 pm Tuesday, funnel clouds were reported by trained spotters in Benton and Fayette counties.  Spotters say these funnels have very little rotation.  The Fayette County Sheriff's office tells us they've been getting dozens of calls.

Schnack says these funnels are just clouds -- most don't even have any rain with them. The radar over eastern Iowa Tuesday afternoon is mostly clear.  For more on this, and much more weather information, check out Schnack's blog HERE.
