relax those are called scud clouds and if they do touch the ground they will do minimal damage. They are beautiful though nice picture!

"Scud Clouds" are simply lookalikes. In this case, these "funnel clouds" are simply normal clouds that happen to look like funnels. Always remember: if there's no rotation, there's no funnel. Beautiful picture though.
