NEW HARTFORD, N.Y. (WKTV) - The man who captured what appears to be a funnel cloud on video says he saw it touch the ground. James Munafo was driving along Route 12 near Paris Hill Road when he spotted the formation and grabbed his cell phone to start recording.

"It was pretty intense, said Munafo, "There was so much hail that it was wicked loud. I was on the phone with the friend of mine while I was parked on the side of the road."

"I saw the funnel cloud. The funnel cloud was up over here and I was driving down the road," said Munafo. "It seemed like it was touching the ground. I didn't have the camera on because I just wanted to get out of there but it seemed like it was touching the ground. So hopefull they'll see something over there. "

The "they" he is referring to is the National Weather Service. Crews from Binghamton were in town to see whether or not a tornado touched down in the area. The NWS should release it's findings at some point on Wednesday.
