Tunnel Cloud

I'm 5 miles west of Keswick Iowa. Just watched this tunnel cloud coming towards me from the West . It went East at a great speed. We get to view a lot out here in the countryside.
(my name Laniusa is pronounced as laynee usa)

That's what's called a Shelf cloud...because it looks like a "shelf" coming at you. Sometimes these will appear to 'boil' or even rotate, but they're NOT funnel clouds. After the shelf cloud passes you're usually in for a thunderstorm !

Really no such thing as a tunnel cloud. If you meant funnel cloud, it's not one of those either. Great video footage though.
