A small landspout, which is a type of tornado, was spotted between Eagle Nest and Angel Fire Thursday. 

It touched down around 2 p.m. and witnesses say it was on the ground for 7-8 minutes. 

It is pretty rare for a tornado to hit this part of New Mexico and stay on the ground for so long. 

A severe thunderstorm warning has been issued for Eagle Nest until 3:30 p.m. 

There are also no reports of damage.
