There was some wild weather in central Iowa Monday night, thankfully no tornadoes, but several reports of funnel clouds were reported.

Photojournalist Roger Riley caught a wall cloud on video near State Center.

He was able to take shelter with some stranded motorists who say the funnel came close to hitting the ground.

“You could see it touching. We just took pictures of it as it went all the way around us.  We knew we shouldn’t have been out, but I wasn’t too far from my mom’s basement,” Laura Castell laughed.

No damage was reported in the area.

Check out Laura’s pictures below.
