Kenosha Police reported waterspouts off the shore of Lake Michigan near Kenosha Thursday afternoon.
Kenosha County Sheriff's Department tells WITI-TV a funnel cloud was first spotted around 1:16 p.m., activing tornado sirens.
The funnel cloud does not appear to have touched down on land, however multiple Milwaukee area media outlets have photos depicting two touchdowns on the water.
According to the National Weather Service, waterspouts have the same characteristics as a land tornado and are often accompanied by high winds and seas, large hail, and frequent dangerous lightning.
