Several people reported seeing waterspouts and funnel clouds over Puget Sound waters on Saturday afternoon.

Photos were taken from the Clinton ferry terminal, from Marysville and Whidbey Island.

Benjamin Martin said he was waiting in line at the Clinton ferry terminal when he spotted a water spout form and touch down near Saratoga passage.

 

 

A couple of the photos were taken by Jennifer Hogan, a trained storm spotter and meteorologist, who just moved to the area last week from Ohio.

Weather spotters from the National Weather Service said a waterspout was spotted just off Hat Island in Possession Sound.

Cliff Mass, University of Washington Professor of Atmospheric Sciences, said on his blog that there were actually three funnels between 4 and 4:15 p.m.
