CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

A funnel cloud with a "possible touchdown" was spotted in Mecklenburg County Friday.

The funnel cloud was filmed by Kelsey Beheler while she was riding in a car getting onto inner I-485 from I-85 south, near the Gaston County line.

At the time of the sighting, Mecklenburg County - as well as several surrounding counties - were under a Tornado Warning as strong storms rolled through the area.

There is no word whether the funnel cloud actually touched down, but no damage had been reported from a tornado as of late Friday night. However, thousands of people in Mecklenburg and surrounding counties did lose power as the strong storms rolled through.
