The national weather service is trying to confirm possible tornado sightings in Maine. They came in on Sunday as a powerful storm system moved across the state. Authorities had issued tornado warnings for several areas of the state, including in the Baxter state park area. This photo was taken by Arielle Smith as she and her mother returned from grocery shopping in Millinocket. She says she spotted a funnel cloud as it reached down from the sky and that it was gone seconds later. The weather service is investigating the reports although officials suspect most of the damage caused by the storm came from straight-line wind damage and not actual tornadoes.
