Early this afternoon, around 2 pm, we started getting reports of a funnel cloud and photos followed shortly after. The location was near La Porte City. The atmosphere was not favorable for a tornado to form where reports of the funnel cloud were. The image below shows a few rain showers near Grundy Center and any storms were well southwest of that. The funnel cloud was not associated with a thunderstorm. A few have asked why the warning sirens were not sounded. The reason is because there was no threat of this becoming a tornado.
