This appeared to be a funnel from my position. I didn't see it on the ground, however someone else reported it as a tornado, which it very well may have been touching the ground. As you can see it is several miles off to the NW of Ringsted at this time. It had violent rotation, although it was very brief.

Heard on NOAA shortly after this sighting that power poles were snapped in half north of Ringsted, however I don't see this in the storm reports. This should confirm it did touch down.
