OKC Skylines 61/161

OKLAHOMA CITY / SKY LINE / OKLAHOMA: SPOOKY OVERHEAD - This is the big cloud that tried to dump a tornado on the south end of Oklahoma City Thursday night. A photographer caught this interesting shot across the Oklahoma City skyline shortly before 7 p.m. About the same time residents lined downtown streets as if expecting a parade. But they were looking up as small funnels swirled down from the cloud base but failed to come to earth. The threatening cloud with the dark base and fleecy top gave Midwest City a brief hailstorm and induced and electrical display over most of the city. Staff Photographer Bill Burns.
