SEATTLE — A funnel cloud was reported near an industrial area south of Seattle, and fire officials say high winds damaged the roof of a building as a winter-weight storm that brought record rains to the Northwest moved through the region.

Central Pierce Fire and Rescue posted an image on Twitter of the commercial building in Frederickson in which portions of the roof were missing. Other images showed debris thrown across the road and under the tires of a parked car.

No injuries were reported.

Central Pierce Fire and Rescue says a reported funnel cloud at about 7:20 a.m. Monday caused the substantial damage.
