Two videos from NewsChannel 3 viewers, shot near the Newport News airport and the Oyster Point section of Newport News Monday afternoon, show funnel clouds forming off in the distance.
It was around 2:30 when York County Schools got wind of a possible funnel cloud. At that point, students at all elementary and middle schools took precaution.
Parents say they got a call around 3 p.m., notifying them about the tornado safety precautions.
Though nothing came out of the ominous clouds and funnel reports, parents say it's better to be safe than sorry.
