COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP)

Authorities say a waterspout that formed over a lake in western Iowa’s Council Bluffs caused no damage or injuries.

The thin funnel could be seen clearly Thursday evening from much of the city and from Omaha, across the Missouri River in Nebraska.

Meteorologist Cory Mead with the National Weather Service says the waterspout and another twister that touched down earlier near Ashland, Nebraska, were landspouts, a type of weak tornado that forms independent of supercells.
