Storm clouds gathered over Westport today — along with a tornado warning.
It never came. But the photo below — one of 3 taken by Jeff Manchester on Saugatuck Shores — sure looks like it could have been one.
Severe weather — including another possible tornado — continues through midnight.
The tornado warning issued around 5:30 tonight was canceled.
But a severe thunderstorm warning — with wind gusts up to 60 miles an hour — was just issued, through 7:15 p.m.
And a tornado watch remains in effect until midnight.
Alert — and fearless — “06880” photographer Patricia McMahon snapped these photos a few minutes ago near Compo Beach.
Get that lawn furniture in. And know where your batteries are!

The National Weather Service has decided that yesterday’s weather incident was not a tornado.
“Just strong winds,” a spokesman said. Not even any “circular motion.”
Being on High Point Road — then navigating Hyde Lane, Long Lots and environs in the immediate aftermath — was scary enough for me.
I was sure I’d end up like Dorothy and Toto.
And I definitely saw flying monkeys.
I snapped this photo in the midst of yesterday's non-tornado.
