(LAMAR, Colo.) — What may have appeared to be the beginnings of a tornado in Lamar on Tuesday, May 30 was actually a landspout.
A landspout, as opposed to a tornado, forms from the ground up and is generally weaker than a tornado. Thankfully, they also tend to be less destructive than a tornado. That didn’t stop this one from alarming locals in Lamar, though.
