Mahoning/Trumbull County Line @ Route 534. LOW cloud base & scud clouds (non-rotating)

The clouds were less than 100 feet from ground level!

Northeast end of Shelf Cloud

These storms also produced a rope funnel cloud about 10 minutes after the above I-76 picture was taken.  Although it was visible from the I-76/Route 534 bridge (East),  the sky was too dark for the digital camera to pick it up.
