The National Weather Service says it may send a survey team to Columbia County Wednesday, after reports of a possible tornado there Tuesday evening.

People living there said they saw a funnel cloud pass through around 5 p.m. and while it didn't do a lot of damage, given everything going on in Oklahoma right now, it was too close for comfort.

There were no reports of injuries. Though one woman became frightened when a wire fell onto her car and began shooting sparks, while she was driving.
